Rooke Library

The Rooke Library is located in the Owing Stone Academic Center — the hub of the Upper School. With more than 12,000 books, periodicals, videos, reference materials, and ebooks, the School library is also a beautiful space to study, work, or just read. It is equipped with 14 computers with high-speed wifi internet connections, as well as additional connectivity drops for students with their own laptops. Two meeting rooms and a sitting area overlooking a garden with bird feeders make this a popular spot on campus.

All members of the St. Andrew’s community (students, parents, trustees, faculty, and staff) are eligible for library privileges in the Rooke Library. The collection includes books, newspapers and periodicals, CDs, books-on-tape, DVDs, reference materials, and ebooks.
