A love of reading is at the center of classical learning.

The Whitefield library exists to build godly character, wisdom, and virtue by providing abundant choices of excellent literature and giving students an appetite for great books and a lifetime of joy through reading.

Kinder Prep through 6th grade students have weekly library time to listen to stories and select books to read at home or for book reports.  The collection is thoughtfully curated by librarian Mrs. Kris Guensche so that students have access to a wide range of quality books.
