Libraries

Lower School Library

At the very heart of the Battle Ground Academy Lower School, the library strives to arouse in students a lasting appreciation of literature and a lifelong joy of reading. Toward this end, the library houses an expanding collection of both print and digital resources to inspire children to explore the world of literature. The library plays a central role in developing the information, media, and technology literacies necessary to locate, evaluate, analyze, and communicate information in a variety of formats. The library program supports the Lower School’s curriculum while preparing students for the academic demands of middle school.

Lower School Library Hours

The library is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every school day, except on late-start days. Students who arrive at school early may get a library pass from the teacher on duty and come to the library to check out a book or read quietly.
