The Thomas P. Sweeney Library

Saint Edmond’s Academy is fortunate to have two library spaces to meet the needs of our kindergarten through eighth grade learners. Students in grades K-7 have library once each cycle. For our younger learners, various award-winning books and authors are introduced and discussed. Book selection immediately follows the instruction. Study skills and best practices for managing school responsibilities are the focus for grades 4-7. Eighth grade students are enrolled in a high school testing course in the library twice a cycle for the first trimester. This course is designed to prepare the boys for their upcoming high school placement tests.

In addition to regular classes, the library also sponsors two Scholastic in-school book fair events and two Barnes and Noble reading nights each year.  Read Across America, which includes a green eggs and ham breakfast, is celebrated with the Lower Form boys in March. These engaging activities are designed to encourage our students to enjoy the life-long benefits of reading.

If you have any questions about the library or you are interested in being a library volunteer, please contact our librarian, Tammy Hayes-Hartman, M.L.S., M.Ed.
