The Newman Library
Growing lifelong readers
The Newman Library serves the entire St. Luke’s Episcopal School community. A priceless resource, the library's collection of approximately 26,000 volumes and diverse electronic databases support the curriculum, provide for independent inquiry, and encourage a love of reading for learning and for pleasure. Library guests enjoy the sun-drenched space which boasts commanding views of the Olmos Basin and the city's skyline.
Our school library program strives to create a culture of reading throughout the school. We seek to ensure that our students are information literate, life-long learners as well as effective and responsible users of ideas and information. Each class (PK-5th) has a set library time each week. Middle schoolers access library resources as needed, either individually or in groups. The beautiful space provides a quiet study environment after school and is open to parents as well.
This is the online version of what was formerly known as the card catalog. In addition to being able to find the library resources by author, title, subject, and key words, books may be found by Accelerated Reader level. The library’s online catalog also provides access to approximately 10,000 high quality and updated websites.
