The St. Monica School library is a multipurpose space and a focal point for learning. Children in the developmental K – 2nd grade enjoy story time and book selection in the Gwen Parish Young Readers area while older grades meet in the Library Meeting Room where a SmartBoard is available for research and library instruction. The library contains common areas with computers where students meet to study, work, or just relax with a good book.

The St. Monica Library collection is ever expanding. With over 18,000 volumes, and subscriptions to over 20 magazines, the library offers books in all genres supporting well over 1,000 check-outs every week. St. Monica offers books for professional development and parent interest available for check out.

We are excited to share this beautiful space with our community! Please remember, no food or drinks are allowed in the library.

Book clubs provide an enjoyable and easy way for your child to develop many literacy skills. Students will learn new vocabulary words and gain exposure to new ideas and concepts. Through discussion, your child will develop a deeper understanding of books, consider others’ perspectives, and practice analyzing, making predictions, and solving problems.
