Rosemary Beaumont Library
Nestled in the heart of campus, The King’s Academy Library seeks to serve as an integral and collaborative partner to our school community. The environment created, is one that promotes a love of reading and encourages lifelong literacy.
Accessible to students and faculty alike, the Library boasts an extensive collection of over 16,500 volumes that includes books for academic and spiritual growth. Our partnership with Ebook Central expands the base of available material by adding 190,000 scholarly titles. The added ability to retrieve information from the entire Britannica School Edition database of articles ensures that our students have everything they need to conduct extensive and informative research as they strive to achieve their academic goals.
The Library also serves as a central location for events throughout the year, such as: The Fall in Love with Reading Book Fair, Author Visits, National History Day, Mock Trials, College visits, Open House, PTF meetings. These events allow our students and faculty to connect and fellowship with one another, providing an enhanced community on campus.
The central area of the Library has recently been transformed into a tech-forward space, known as the Conference and Collaboration Center, affectionately nick-named “The Cube.” This glass-enclosed space includes comfortable and modern seating (with charging stations!) for approximately 25 students, full wireless access, a 105” smart screen, and a presentation station (otherwise known as a tech-savvy podium!). The Cube can be scheduled for use by students, classes, and faculty before, during, and after school.

How we teach students to access knowledge and information:
|The librarian and staff collaborate with teachers to enhance curriculum and support student learning and development. We do this by providing a wide range of educational opportunities to students, from library instruction to story time, to show students what resources are available and how to properly use them. Each educational opportunity works with and supports what is taught in the classroom.|
The library and its many resources and opportunities are geared towards helping students achieve academic goals in the present, but also preparing them for future academic and life goals.
