The role of our Upper and Lower School libraries is to enrich the intellectual life of the school. Our librarians and library media specialists work to create lifelong readers and learners comfortable in an information-rich world. The CESJDS libraries are more than just resource collections – we offer dynamic library programs and services that emphasize both research skills and pleasure reading.
