Libraries

We connect all levels of readers with books they love.

From students’ earliest years at Packer, they come to the library to encounter the amazing world of story. They are invited to interact with librarians who take time to know them as individuals. While this visible “face” of Packer’s libraries is at the heart of our work, our impact is more far-reaching. 

Our Hart and Blackburne Libraries are a pillar of Packer’s academic program, offering outstanding and inclusive collections of fiction and nonfiction books with meaningful connections to students’ studies and to their own experiences. We provide daily access to authoritative and up-to-date digital research tools to both students and faculty, on and off campus. We collaborate with teachers in all divisions, delivering information literacy instruction in our libraries and classrooms. Located on the first floor of the Front Hall, our libraries are in every sense central to our students’ experience.
