The libraries of Hammond School support the philosophy, mission, and curriculum of the school. The purpose of the libraries is to nurture academic excellence in students in all three levels of pre-collegiate education, to help them become informed and ethical citizens of the world, to encourage students to love learning and to enjoy reading, and to teach them to be proficient users of information in all its formats.
Our two libraries, Walker for the Lower School grades pre-kindergarten through fourth grade, and Manning for grades five through twelve are located centrally on their respective campuses. Walker Library is built as a separate log cabin with a soaring ceiling and clerestory windows. Manning Library shares Manning Hall with Upper School administrative offices and is convenient to both Upper and Middle Schools.
