Mellon Library



Named for former US ambassador Andrew W. Mellon, the Mellon Library represents a key academic and recreational resource for students in Grades 5-12, faculty, staff, parents and the extended ASL community.

The 28,000-volume collection includes fiction and non-fiction materials, reference resources, a variety of magazines and newspapers from the US, the UK and Europe, and non-print media including DVDs and audio and ebooks through our Overdrive online library. The library's catalog, as well as full-text periodical and reference databases are available on the website.

Library facilities include a large study area housing the main print collection, quiet study rooms, computers for general use, and a conference room.
