The RCDS Library provides resources and programming that emphasize thinking, inquiry, and information literacy skills.
The library has two branches: the Lower School Library and the Middle/Upper School Library. A single, unified catalog (OPAC) serves both. Students, faculty, staff, and parents are welcome to check out books from either branch.
The library collections include about 27,000 volumes, plus approximately 800 videos and 60 periodicals in hard copy. Additionally, the library has access to hundreds of other reference sources and periodicals through e-books and online databases covering the arts, sciences, history, biography, literature, general and scholarly periodicals, and historical newspapers.
The Lower School Library is open throughout the school day for scheduled classes and drop-ins. The Middle/Upper School Library is open before and after school as well. The catalog and databases are accessible online 24 hours a day.
