Greens Farms Academy has two libraries: the Lower School Library serving grades Pre-K - 4 and the Middle/Upper School Library serving grades 5 - 12. The primary goals of the libraries are to promote reading for pleasure and to enable students to become effective and independent users of ideas and information. The libraries provide a collection of print and electronic sources that support the curriculum and technologies found in the classrooms and throughout independent research. The collections include more than 20,000 volumes, 60 journal subscriptions, 2 newspapers (NY Times and the Wall St. Journal), various videos and audio books, access to an online catalog (Alexandria) and databases.
Books and other library materials are purchased to support the curriculum and pleasure reading. Purchases are made based on appropriate reviews from Booklist, Horn Book, School Library Journal, and the NY Times Book Review. Faculty, parent, and student requests are also welcome.
