The Rocky Hill Country Day School Library is an uplifting space where community members gather to read, learn, research, collaborate, and relax. Our library program enriches and supports the work of all three divisions.
- Students in PreK through Grade 2 attend weekly library classes to develop a love of reading and research. Our youngest learners engage with new authors, learn basic research skills, and explore various genres.
- 3rd through 5th grade students dive into more advanced online research skills such as using search engines, evaluating websites, and citing sources in support of their classroom Project Based Learning work.
- The RHCD School librarian collaborates with teachers and students in the Middle and Upper School to provide book tasting and book club opportunities as well as classes and workshops on important topics such as how to use online research platforms and the importance of academic honesty.
- Middle School and Upper School students use the library for research and quiet study throughout the day.
The RHCD library:
- Offers high interest new releases as well as classic literature for Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School students.
- Provides access to online databases such as Britannica School, World Book Online, Culturegrams, and Exploring Nature.
- Offers exciting programming such as virtual field trips, author visits, and book fairs.
