Information Updates: What's New?
The Thacher School Library has been a bustling place since the start of the school year. In an effort to keep the Thacher community informed, we are starting a newsletter to share what's happening.
First, a little refresher about our library.
The library is a community space with multiple purposes.
- A quiet place to study, especially Sunday - Thursday from 7:30-9:30
- A repository of resources for research and enrichment
- Classroom and group study space
- A place to design and create in the Project Studio
- A social space for clubs and meetings

Group Work: It's great to work and learn with others. Please take advantage of the Conference Room, Projects Studio, or the Records Room where you have access to whiteboards, tables, and comfortable seating.
Mini whiteboards and markers are available.
Members of the community should be respectful of others trying to work and take care of the resources available to the entire community. We thank you for picking up and returning items, including dishes, to the place they originated.
The Library Courtyard is always available to individuals and groups wishing to study or socialize.
