The Fieldston Lower Library is a vital community asset, with over 28,000 book and e-book titles, access to multiple online databases, encyclopedias, and other electronic resources.

Our library space has rooms for different ages and purposes and different parts of the collection. It was designed for safety and comfort, and increasingly independent use by students. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, the library is staffed to allow student and faculty use throughout the day, on an as-needed basis. Parents are welcome before and after school.  The library is an environment that is welcoming, and nurtures a reading culture.
