Parish Episcopal School libraries are centers for reading and research, enabling our students to be passionate life-long learners. At the Hillcrest Campus, the library fosters our youngest of students from PreK - 2nd grade. At the Midway Campus, the Amanda Havard Library meets the needs of students in 3rd and 4th grades while the main library serves 5th - 12th grades.
Each library has a diverse collection of print and online materials to support not only the curriculum, but also the varied interests of our students. A variety of online databases provide current, credible information at the point of need. Our digital library offers free e-books and audiobooks for readers from children to adults. Online and digital resources, including the library catalog, may be accessed from the Library Resource Board when logged in to MyPARISH portal.
The Parish libraries are dedicated to remaining at the forefront of making learning accessible and effective in order to help create young people of impact.
ParishInquires is a recursive research process model written in collaboration between the Parish library and faculty, staff, and students. The model is used by all three divisions to teach students how to plan and implement effective research strategies so they may access, evaluate, and curate information to engage in authentic, meaningful work.
