The Stokes Library Media Center serves the school community as a welcoming space for reading, browsing, small-group work and research. Throughout the school day, the library is open and available to host a group of students working together on a project, a class looking for information on a topic, a teacher helping a student with an assignment, or a small group of students studying a text with the aid of a teacher. It is also used for committee meetings, which might bring together administrators, faculty, trustees and students.
The five rooms of the library, whose traditional woodwork and marble fireplaces provide a gracious setting, house a 14,000-volume collection of printed texts. The ebook collection can be accessed through any device, including e-readers, which are available for borrowing. The library’s desktop computers, laptops and iPads are also available for students to use for research and projects.
