The mission of Commonwealth School is to educate young people from diverse backgrounds to become knowledgeable, thoughtful, and creative researchers, capable of careful analysis, fruitful cooperation, and deep commitment.
To meet this mission, Commonwealth students must be able to gather and manage information skillfully. As such, Commonwealth's Library aims to facilitate access to information relevant to the coursework and academic interests of the students, faculty, and staff of the School. Research skills learned in the library will equip students to lead well-informed, thoughtful, productive lives.
The Library consists of a rich variety of print and electronic resources, connections to outside libraries and collections, and a program of information literacy instruction. To see what new resources have recently been added to the collection, visit our New in the Library page.
