Castle Library serves the entire educational program at Seabury Hall by providing a rich variety of informational resources, as well as instruction in their use. The library has joined the the LibGuides academic research community, which includes colleges and universities around the world.
The library maintains a collection of books, periodicals, and newspapers, as well as videotapes and DVDs. Students are able to use computers, both PC and Macs, for high-speed Internet access, word processing, and creation of multimedia projects.
The School Librarian assists students and faculty with their research and reading needs. This is accomplished by providing formal information literacy instruction across the curriculum planned with teachers, giving book talks, displaying new and interesting books, and guiding individuals through the information problem-solving and fiction selection processes.
The School Librarian maintains two blogs: the SEABURY READS blog, accessible on the school's website, wherein students, teachers, parents, and alumni can make reading recommendations, and mauilibrarian2 in Olinda which explores technological resources and how they can be used in the classroom.
Students are encouraged to follow the library's @castlelibrary Twitter feed located on the student portal, to find out what is happening in the library daily, and to tap into the latest information and tips that will help them with their school work.
Library hours are posted at the beginning of the school year. Generally the library is open 30 minutes before school begins and stays open until the late afternoon.
