Middle and Upper School library


The Gummere Library is the learning commons for the Middle School and Upper School community. Its mission is to promote a love of reading and to ensure that students become effective users and sharers of information and ideas. Students come to the library with their classes during research projects and individually to study, read or get help from the librarians. The library houses a collection of 23,000 books and a rich array of electronic resources, including subscription databases.
