Library

SHS houses two comprehensive libraries--one for the students, faculty, staff of the LMS and PSK, and one for those at SHP. Library staff seek to promote a lifelong love of learning and reading through a variety of diverse resources and mediums. Beginning with basic information literacy instruction, the librarians encourage intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, which enhance the array of complex skills students need to live, learn, and work successfully in a global community.

  • Lucas Family Library (SHP)

    The Lucas Family Library welcomes all learners, and teaches information literacy for grades 9-12 via a coherent program that emphasizes the development of the higher-order thinking skills essential to the process of locating, evaluating, and ethically using information within an academic context. The librarians work collaboratively with faculty to ensure that information resources and concrete research skills for students are introduced, practiced and refined in a cohesive process that builds across the four-year curriculum. The over-arching goals of the library are to foster a lifelong joy in learning and reading, and to prepare each student to comfortably enter a college or university research library.

    The Lucas Family Library is open from 7:30am to 4pm daily, except Wednesdays, when its hours are 9:10am-4pm. With a collection of 17,000 print books, 130,000 e-books, 50 subscription databases, and 36 desktop computers for student use, the library offers a comprehensive range of the resources important for student success. Its online resources, including databases and e-books, are accessible both on campus and also from home, via password.
