"Quiet” is not the adjective to describe Wildwood’s libraries. At the elementary and middle and upper school campuses, the libraries hum with students collaborating on projects, discovering online and printed resources, and developing the research skills that they’ll use in college and in life.
Loyola University Chicago distinguishes its library in three ways: It’s a place of collaboration, connectivity, and community. Wildwood’s libraries fit this same model. Our libraries serve as meeting places for study groups and project teams. They provide a conduit to a vast world of resources through computer workstations and online data. And they offer a place where students can hang out with a good book or a group of friends.
Whole classes visit the school’s libraries for subject-specific lessons. Teachers and librarians work with students on research, including how to evaluate and select resources from an ever-changing information bank. In an age when facts and figures can shift with the latest podcast, Wildwood’s libraries capitalize on the dynamic nature of knowledge and offer students the tools and assistance to plug in.
