The Thomas Little Memorial Library in the Upper School is named after Thomas Little who was the Principal of the school between 1895 and 1908.
It has quiet spacious rooms, conducive to reading or research and occasionally hosts informative presentations for students, staff, and the community. In addition to developing reading and literacy skills, the library supports the teaching and learning process and has a positive impact on students’ academic achievements.
There is a large selection of books, periodicals, journals, newspapers, reference books, and audio-visual items. Students can use the computer provided to access the online research library, JSTOR, which includes more than 100,000 e-books, 12 million academic journal articles and more than two million primary sources in 75 disciplines. With this rich collection, students are never at a loss for good reading, be it for pleasure or for academic research. Developing and enriching the library collection is a continuous process.
To introduce the younger students to the pleasure and value of reading, the Lower School sections also have their own libraries. There is also a Quaker Library with a wide selection of books about Quakers: their philosophy, religion, biographies and commitment to social and peace studies.
