St. Martin’s Libraries are an extension of the classroom. In addition to empowering students to develop a lifelong love of reading, our library faculty encourage students to develop the critical and analytical skills necessary for true media literacy in the information age. These skills promote a solid foundation in the principles of academic research by evaluating a variety of media and publication types, creating citations, comparing the advantages and disadvantages of print versus digital media, respecting digital citizenship, promoting online safety, and developing presentation and publication techniques. During formal class instruction, attention is given to the use of both traditional sources of the highest academic standard, and the 21st century digital resources that we know our students are accessing on a daily basis as they pursue their own information needs outside of school. Our library faculty strive to serve students in their independent research and recreational reading through our outstanding diverse collections that are tailored to meet the needs of students, faculty, and families. The library faculty also collaborate closely with the classroom teachers to support the curriculum, ensuring the comprehensive information literacy integration found across all academic divisions.
St. Martin's Episcopal School has two libraries to serve students of all ages. The Martin Family Library serves the Middle and Upper School. The George Cottage and Lower School are served by the Lower School Library. The libaries offer an extensive collection, which includes books, periodicals, videos, CDs, and other materials. The libraries create an inviting and comfortable environment to engage in research, work on assignments, and pursue personal interests.
