Library

Lovett is home to two libraries: The Vasser Woolley Memorial Library, which serves the Middle and Upper Schools, and The Dorothy H. Floyd Library, which serves the Lower School.



The Vasser Woolley Library contains more than 37,000 books and nonprint materials. Its primary purpose is to support, enrich, and extend the educational program of The Lovett School. To this end, every effort is made to organize library resources and services to facilitate their use by students and faculty. The librarians provide information seeking skills instruction, reading guidance, and ready reference assistance to individual students or entire classes.

The Dorothy H. Floyd Library houses more than 26,000 books and nonprint materials. The library subscribes to 45 periodicals and provides a wide variety of audiovisual equipment for students and faculty. Kindergarten through fifth grade classes come to the library weekly. Stories and library skills instruction are part of the curriculum for each grade. In addition, it is expected that every Lower School student will spend some time each week in the library. Books are at the heart of the library. Book talks, bookmarks listing books by subject, a visiting authors program, and the acquisition of curriculum-centered books with student appeal are some of the ways reading is encouraged throughout the year. Parents are welcomed and may check out books for themselves or their children.

The library's automated catalog is accessible via the Internet on the Lovett library website. A variety of information and resources is collected on this site, including access to the school's numerous subscriptions to full-text databases. The library homepage serves as a gateway to research which enhances the use of electronic as well as traditional resources.
