Libraries

Our libraries are more than just a quiet retreat for study and research — they're integral partners in the delivery of our academic programs at all levels.

  • Wilder Library

    It’s an essential component of lifelong wellbeing — the ability to support one’s interests and development through reading. At the Wilder Library a culture of reading for growth, and a general love of reading, is developed and sustained. Students can inquire about and research any interest, drawing on a range of online resources, electronic reference materials and in-library volumes — everything from picture and chapter books, to graphic novels.

    With expert librarian guidance, students and parents can access online, searchable catalogues, UCC and public library collections, electronic encyclopedias and curriculum support organized by inquiry theme. Thoughtfully curated reading lists offer ideas for extracurricular weekend and summer reading.

  • Macintosh Library

    The Macintosh Library is at the heart of the Upper School’s academic program. Upper School students learn that Google searches aren’t the only tool out there! A robust and expertly curated collection of in-library resources and curriculum-based materials includes the unique Heintzman Music Library Collection. With a wide variety of online book lists, databases and LibGuides, students learn to navigate their way through core and relevant resources in any particular subject field, class or assignment. They can access electronic encyclopedias and full-text databases accessible via the online library on the school network. It provides easy access to catalogues of major public and academic libraries in the Toronto area, as well as a collection of selected and authoritative websites also geared to their research needs.

    Students become apt at identifying research goals, assembling authoritative sources and, most importantly, learning to reflect critically on a chosen topic.
