The mission of the Norfolk Collegiate Lower School Library is to instill the pleasure of reading and encourage the development of intellectual curiosity in all students.
A wonderful educational resource, the facility holds over 20,000 volumes on its shelves and offers access to a variety of print and online materials. The library supports the curriculum at each grade level and is used as a resource for in-class assignments, research projects and pleasure reading.
The library catalog, Destiny
, may be viewed via computer or iPad at school. Home access to Destiny is available with a student login.
The Norfolk Collegiate Lower School Library is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. during the school year with the exception of early dismissal days, when it closes at 1 p.m. Any changes to these regular hours are posted and announced. Later hours may be arranged in advance.
Students in kindergarten may check out two books at a time, and all other students may check out three books of their choice, including any reasonable number needed for assignments from teachers.
Parent volunteers are a wonderful asset to the Norfolk Collegiate Lower School Library, and donations to the library collection are always welcome. For further questions regarding book donations or volunteer opportunities
