LIBRARY

When you visit Park, the first stop on your tour

will be our wonderful Library.

Called the “heart” of Park, our Library has long held a central place here, both physically and metaphorically. We treasure it as a vital site for engaging, teaching and learning, exploring, and collaborating. Beginning in PreK, Park’s youngest learners visit the Library for regular classes, which continue throughout the Lower Division, allow readers to develop their own interests while creating a sense of belonging. Upper Division students learn research and critical thinking skills in library classes and access the many resources and electronic databases.

Park’s Library is a place for the exploration of ideas and the pursuit of learning for all members of the community. Varied spaces and materials invite open-ended, creative, collaborative, and hands-on experiences. With a unique focus on publishing, the Library Makerspace promotes student voices to be shared authentically with audiences in the classroom, the school community, and the world. Our professional development collection supports faculty and staff in their ongoing quest for knowledge.

When you visit Park, the first stop on your tour will be our vibrant Library. Come see what makes it special.

2019: New Voices, New Discoveries

From the 2019 Winter Park Parent.

This year, Park's librarians were especially delighted to discover a plethora of new voices in the children’s book world. The sustaining influence of #WeNeedDiverseBooks, #OwnVoices, and #ReadWoke has provided a vital spark to publishers, who are showing an increased willingness to promote diverse talent from underrepresented perspectives and cultures.
