Collaborative Opportunities

We greatly appreciate receiving copies of any assignment that may require students to do the least bit of research. This allows us to field questions when students are confused or need guidance. Similarly, we are always willing to work with faculty in creating successful research assignments that take full advantage of the library’s many resources.

Inter-Library Loan

If you need something for class or for your own personal research, just ask a librarian for assistance. HW students and employees have access to the library collections of the middle and upper school and of fifteen other independent schools. If an item is not available from any of these sources, we are happy to help you look in WorldCat to find it in a different nearby institution.

Collection Development

We value our community members' expertise and interests, especially when we make decisions on what to add to the library's collection. We welcome recommendations year-round from students and colleagues alike.

Game Collection

The library maintains a collection of board games and card games, available for use in the library or for overnight check-out.

Faculty & Staff Lending Library

There is a small collection of print books and books on CD in the library behind the circulation desk that are current releases, best sellers, popular authors and other items of interest to faculty and staff members. You can browse the print Lending Library and audio Lending Library online.

Other Resources (Toys)

The library has a number of classroom resources available for faculty and staff to use. These include a 24"-wide hot laminator, a small hand-crank laminator, a 24"-wide HP color poster printer, a simpler Poster Maker (enlarges 8.5” X 11” to poster size), and an Ellison die cutter (great for bulletin boards).
