The School has three separate libraries focused on three distinct levels of student development- early childhood, elementary and middle school. There are librarians on staff to provide age-appropriate support and guidance to students and faculty.
Research is a large part of the curriculum at most levels. The technology and library curricula overlap and teachers work together, especially in middle school, to give students the skills they need in this area. The Elisabeth Morrow School requires students to use the Modern Language Association (MLA) format for works cited. The library website gives resources and examples to help students meet the requirements for correct citation as well as guidelines for fair use and copyright.
Goals of the library program at The Elisabeth Morrow School
- Meet the academic and information needs of the entire school community
- Encourage a love of reading and fine literature
- Keep abreast of current trends in librarianship through membership in professional organizations.
