Libraries

Our campus has two libraries to serve the Duchesne community. The Sister Lamy Library is located in the Lower School and welcomes children to listen to stories, select books, and learn about things that interest them. The Wilkinson Family Library houses the Middle and Upper School collection, providing a strong mix of research opportunities through print and electronic resources, as well as books for leisure reading, art displays, speakers, authors, and special exhibits.

Each library has a comfortable environment which encourages students to read a book, study, work collaboratively on projects, or even play chess. The library classrooms in the Wilkinson Family Library are used by the librarians to teach information literacy skills as well as provide a quiet place for study.

Both libraries are staffed by librarians with Masters degrees in Library and Information Science who teach research and information literacy integrated with the curriculum, as well as plan programs such as author visits, Universal Reading Day, Book Fair, and the celebration of Banned Books Week.

Students at Duchesne have access to a full range of resources that serve all grade levels. The electronic resources range from encyclopedias to high level academic indexes and include a universal catalog that shows all holdings from both libraries.
