Holland Hall has three libraries on campus – one in each branch for Upper School, Middle School, and Primary School students. This provides each age-level of student with access to outstanding resources and dedicated professionals in each library. Collections total more than 70,000 items and include an ever expanding array of formats — books, e-books, periodicals, video recordings, musical recordings, etc. — as well as numerous age-appropriate online databases to accommodate users’ information needs. Each library serves its constituency of students, teachers, staff, and parents as a resource to support the mission of the school and to help users become independent, information-literate, lifelong learners. In addition, the library is an intellectual focal point of each school, enriching curriculum, promoting reading, disseminating ideas, and teaching research skills.
The Sue T. Lawson Visiting Illustrator Author Program (VIA) has been a long-standing tradition in the Holland Hall Primary School. Each year, a prominent children’s book author or illustrator (or both!) visits Primary School students for a day of reading and activities with the author.
