The Dorothy and Chalmers Posten Library at Heathwood Hall hosts two separate collections: one supporting students and faculty in Early Childhood through fourth grade, and one supporting students and faculty in grades 5-12.
With 14,474 volumes, 35 periodical subscriptions and 11 databases, the Early Childhood/Lower School collection offers age appropriate materials that support curriculum and encourage students to read for pleasure and information. The library also has a collection of non-print materials and professional and general interest periodicals. Students come to the library regularly to enjoy story time, check out books, and take part in instructional classes.
The Middle/Upper School library collection features 18,800 titles (print and video), a subscription to the Overdrive e-book consortium which provides hundreds of e-books, 58 periodical subscriptions, and 38 data bases. These resources provide excellent materials for the academic and pleasure reading needs of our students and faculty. The library is designed to allow class and small groups as well as individuals to use the resources simultaneously. Students are welcome to use the library at any time before, during and after the school day.
Library hours are 7:45 AM – 4:00 PM Monday through Thursday and 7:45 AM – 3:30 PM on Friday.
