Mudd Library

A comfortable gathering place for Harvard-Westlake students, staff, and faculty, the library holds approximately 20,000 books, journals, and other resources.  We have audiobooks for English class texts and pleasure reading available on Overdrive and on iPods. Additionally, as a member of ISLE, the Independent School Library Exchange consortium, the HW community has access to library materials from 13 local schools.

The library subscribes to approximately 90 magazines, journals, and newspapers. Thousands of other resources, including scholarly journals, magazines, e-books, and historical newspapers can be obtained through our database subscriptions. 


The library is staffed by Edith DarlingJessica Wahl, and Kacie Cox, all holders of Master's degrees in Library and Information Science. The staff is aided by a dedicated and generous group of parent volunteers.
