Clagett McLennan Library
At Bement, we love our books. The Clagett McLennan Library lets students take this passion for reading—and for studying and learning—to the next level. With a diverse and inclusive collection of 10,000 print titles, 50,000 digital ebooks and eaudiobooks on Sora, 30 electronic databases and online encyclopedias, the Grace Bement Reading Room, and the Flynt collaborative meeting space, students and teachers use the library every day to research, explore, and create.
Our younger students spend time every week with our experienced and innovative librarian and learn information literacy skills, digital citizenship, and how to relax by the fireplace with a great story. Upper school students visit the library to complement their studies, work collaboratively, or conduct research.
Hands-on exploration is incorporated into the library program. With opportunities to film in front of the green screen, program a Sphero or Ozobot robot, explore electronics with LittleBits and Snap Circuits, or build with a vast collection of LEGOs and other building materials. The library allows students of all ages to bring their imaginations to life.
