Finding Your Passion

This college-like library offers students a relaxed area for hanging out, with places for quiet study and research.

Belk Upper School Learning Center

In today's library, we experience firsthand as kids explore the edges of our resources, so we can see exactly where our collection needs to grow. Student research has prompted us to add new books in areas ranging from the French Wars of Religion to the development of the banjo from its roots in Africa, to gender fluidity in Hindu mythology.Tedd Roseberry, Upper School Head Librarian
