Featuring an extensive 18,000+ volume print collection, 18 computers, an LCD projector and access to online databases and catalogs, Brookwood’s library serves as a valuable resource for students and faculty throughout the school year as part of our integrated curriculum model.

Programs such as the annual One School, One Book initiative and Mystery Book of the Month foster a community-wide culture of reading, and visits from leading authors and illustrators further generate excitement about literature. Brookwood families are also encouraged to utilize our extensive collection to access a variety of child and adolescent development resources.
