Joan Stitt McMenamin Library


From the beginning, Nightingale girls develop a love of reading and the written word.

Lower School girls have their own library filled with age-appropriate books and cozy spots in which to read them. As they progress from learning to read to reading to learn, the girls are taught research skills and begin to navigate both physical and electronic resources in their search for information.

For Middle and Upper School girls, the Joan Stitt McMenamin Library serves as a central area for study, collaboration, and learning. With tens of thousands of physical volumes and access to millions more through electronic means, the library provides countless resources for students and is a vital part of the Nightingale educational experience. As part of our exciting schoolhouse expansion project (to be completed by fall 2015), the main library is being reimagined and expanded to support the role of a library in the modern age. With a new reading room under the historic arched windows, group workspaces, a host of individual study areas, and soft seating throughout, our library will continue to be a place of both learning and connection for our students.
