Stuart is home to two libraries for students from preschool through grade 12. In fulfillment of Sacred Heart Goal Two, a deep respect for intellectual values, the Stuart libraries serve as an intellectual resource to students and faculty. The libraries provide physical access to materials and information both in print and online.
Middle and Upper School
The Raissa Maritain Library serves Middle and Upper School students in grades 5–12. The physical collection includes approximately 16,000 items—books, DVDs, CDs and print periodicals—searchable using the Web-based catalog. Students may also utilize, through the Raissa Maritain Library Web page, a vast virtual library of research tools and information sources. In addition, students have access to print from their Drive using the printer/photocopier in the library.
Igniting a love of reading and literature is at the core of a Stuart education for our youngest students in preschool through fourth grade.
Our Lower School library is at the center of Millie’s Garden, the innovative hub of our Lower School. Books are an integral part of our girls’ learning environment, readily available at their fingertips, should students find something that piques their interest or inspires them to explore a new subject.
The collection includes books and selected periodicals and electronic media. The online collection features subscription databases, vetted study resources, and copyright-free image collections.
