The Upper School Libraries provide a quiet environment for serious study and research, encourage collaborative student work both in and out of class, introduce new technology tools, and promote recreational reading. In collaboration with the faculty, the libraries support the curriculum through a rich collection of print and online resources and instruction of skills and media to enhance a variety of research projects. The libraries adhere to a strong commitment of supporting diversity through the collections, displays, and programming. Technology media instruction and experimentation is emphasized in the Cranbrook Campus Library and research instruction, assistance, and production is emphasized in the Kingswood Campus Library.
Cranbrook Schools recognizes the different developmental and educational needs of boys and girls in their middle school years. As such, the Middle School for Boys and the Middle School for Girls have created library programs and resources that enable all students to achieve their various academic goals. The libraries at both middle schools provide vigorous support to students for their learning activities, and the librarians and faculty collaborate to embed essential research and technology skills into the curriculum. A variety of print and online resources are available, along with a broad selection of literature appealing to both boys' and girls' varied interests.
Guiding students Pre-K through 5th grade toward a life-long love of reading and seeking new ideas, the Brookside Library offers a wide variety of print and digital resources to Cranbrook Schools' youngest learners.
