The mission of the St. Joseph’s Academy library and its certified librarians is to provide students and faculty with materials that enrich and support the curriculum, taking into consideration the varied interests, abilities, and maturity levels of the students. Professional staff assist the members of the school community in efficiently accessing, critically evaluating, and creatively and ethically using that information. The aim is to place principle above personal opinion and reason above prejudice in selection of materials of the highest quality in order to assure a comprehensive collection for the users of the library.

Students are invited to come to the library to research, do homework or study quietly, or relax and read a book.

The Library Collection

The library provides both physical and electronic materials; the librarians are available to assist students and teachers in locating and using the materials.

  • Search for books in the online catalog.
  • Access databases for your research needs.
  • Find everything you need to know about the library on the Library Resources page in Canvas.

The library subscription databases include full-text magazine and newspaper articles, literary criticism, social issues position articles, multimedia files and tools within the databases to help students’ research efforts. There are a variety of print and electronic materials available to students as they prepare for college, including ACT, SAT and AP practice tests.
