Library & Technology Center

Students across all 11 grades at Renbrook enjoy the benefits of the library. The youngest grades gather in the cozy corner for Story Hours or to browse among titles just right for 3-year-olds, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students. Library studies are a part of the curriculum in Grades 1-8 as students learn to be independent learners and critical thinkers through an ever-broadening program of reading, research, critique, and collaboration. The library's lower level also houses the school's IT department offices and training space.
