Lillian A. and George L. Clarke Library

The Lillian A. and George L. Clarke Library provides students and faculty resources and services for learning and entertainment. Each student comes to the library weekly to check out books for personal use. Students select and check out books and have a story time or a lesson. The library is open to all students and faculty for enrichment. 

Project renovations and upgrading are constant in our library in order to provide the most efficient library possible. Currently, we are building a new MakerSpace which will enhance classroom curriculum studies and allow more hands-on learning experiences for our students. 

We host a multimedia center that offers teachers and students a variety of curriculum enhancing options such as Wireless Computer Options, Videos, DVDs and Digital Presentations. We also house one of the largest Guided Reading Libraries in our area. 

Please consider yourself invited to all of the many literary excursion we offer during the school year, such as our Fall and Spring Book Fairs with Family Nights, Dynamic Dad and Kids Night, and other literacy evenings as planned throughout the year. 

New this summer! We will have special summer reading times for St. Cyprian's students! More information on this exceptional Summer Reading Program will follow later in the year.
