Library

Dutchess Day School’s library has a bright and inviting atmosphere where children can explore, learn, and read.

From kindergarten through fourth grade, students take weekly library classes to learn basic library arts skills and find engaging books to check out and take home. Upper schoolers use the library for research, may check out laptops for internet research, and peruse the extensive collection of sources for various classes including English and history. 

Our 11,000 volume catalog is automated and available for electronic search. Students learn how to determine a book’s availability, check out and return borrowed books, and see which books they have out. Teaching autonomy in using the library and its resources and making books readily available are our primary goals. Our collection is being reviewed and expanded constantly to ensure the available titles are both relevant and interesting.
