Middle School/Upper School Library

The Middle School/Upper School Library maintains a diverse and inclusive collection of over 14,000 captivating, popular fiction titles, as well as award-winning nonfiction and reference books for students in grades 5-12. Students have access to over 40 databases from school and home, including encyclopedias, newspapers, ebooks, magazines, history and science resources, and literary topics. Library patrons work with librarians to hone information-literacy skills and become adept at finding, evaluating, interpreting, and integrating information. Shared space is available for group study, while the Reading Room provides a quiet environment for independent work.

TVS values its community of readers. Our librarians share their love of reading for pleasure with book programs, author visits, pop-up libraries in study halls, and book recommendations and suggestions for all readers.

Bookmark Exchange With Trinidad & Tobago

The boys at Tabaquite Secondary School in Trinidad & Tobago exchanged bookmarks with Mrs. Cox's art classes to celebrate reading and cultural exchange. Thanks to the International Association of School Librarianship and to Aaron Jones, librarian at Tabaquite Secondary School, for coordinating the activity!
