Promoting Research & Information Literacy
The libraries at Brooklyn Friends School prepare students as effective users of ideas and information. By selecting and promoting quality literature, we encourage students to become lifelong readers and critical thinkers. Our libraries provide access to relevant resources and current technology, and our programs integrate curriculum, research skills, and information literacy.
