C.V. Starr Library and Learning Center

The C. V. Starr Library and Learning Center is one of our school's treasures. The library's primary mission is to assist students in becoming effective users of information and to nurture a lifelong love of reading. This multimedia facility includes a book collection that contains almost 25,000 titles. The library is an attractive, spacious environment where students can feel comfortable and work productively. 

Library orientation sessions are offered to instruct students in the effective use of the collection. Students in the lower division through grade 5 have a weekly library period. In grades 6-8, teachers coordinate library use with the librarian, and students visit the library as a class for research or independent study.

"My purpose as a librarian is to help each child find the book that will uncover the pleasures of reading," says librarian Angela Perna. "As I know from personal experience, books have the ability to change a life."
Grandparents, aunts and uncles, babysitters, and cherished friends gathered at St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's for "Special Visitors Day."
