Rosemary Beaumont Library

ILP25408R
Nestled in the heart of campus, The King’s Academy Library and Media Center seeks to serve as an integral and collaborative partner to our school community. The environment created is one that promotes a love of reading and encourages lifelong literacy, as well as promotes and teaches methods of information retrieval that will continue throughout the students’ academic careers and non-academic endeavors.

Accessible to students and faculty alike, the Library and Media Center boasts an extensive collection of over 15,000 volumes that includes books for academic and spiritual growth. Our partnership with ebrary expands the base of available material by adding 110,000 scholarly titles. The added ability to retrieve information from the entire World Book Student database of articles insures that our young scholars have everything they need to conduct extensive and informative research as they strive to achieve their academic goals.

 

The central area of the Library has recently been transformed into a tech-forward space known as the Conference and Collaboration Center, affectionately nick-named “The Cube.” This glass-enclosed space includes comfortable and modern seating (with charging stations!) for approximately 25 students, full wireless access, a 105” smart screen, and a presentation station (otherwise known as a tech-savvy podium!). The Cube can be scheduled for use by students, classes, faculty and volunteers before, during, and after school.

The Rosemary Beaumont Library is open during the following hours:

Monday through Thursday
7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Friday
7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The TKA Library is not only a twenty-first century Library and Resource Center, but a Learning Center for the entire campus. We strive to help students learn to access knowledge and information, using both effectively today and throughout their lives.

We do this by:

  • Collaborating – The librarian and staff collaborate with teachers to enhance curriculum and support student learning and development. We do this by providing a wide range of educational opportunities to students, from library instruction to story time, to show students what resources are available and how to properly use them. Each educational opportunity works with and supports what is taught in the classroom.
  • Preparing – The library and its many resources and opportunities are geared towards helping students achieve academic goals in the present, but also preparing them for future academic and life goals.
  • Modeling – The librarian and staff believe in teaching and modeling digital citizenship so students can learn how to properly use resources and information, both now and in the future. This includes proper use of the Internet, Social Media, Online Databases and Tools and Global Virtual Connections. In addition, we foster and support a life-long love for reading among ourselves, students, teachers and families.
  • Empowering – The library offers students a variety of creative opportunities, from a fun and educational Makers’ Space to paper re-write stations, to implement what they have learned in class and have confidence in themselves and their own knowledge. The librarian and staff help students collaborate, innovate and create through students’ own imagination and gathered knowledge.
