The East Campus Library is a vibrant academic center where students and faculty can study, collaborate, and learn together. The Librarians, Elisabeth Abarbanel and Jessica James, are available to help the Brentwood School community with research needs and to recommend good books to read.
The Library houses over 17,000 print books and DVDs, has growing collections of ebooks and audio books, and subscribes to numerous databases. The librarians believe that students should be exposed quality information in any format that works best for their information need. They teach information literacy integrated into the school’s curriculum, and they regularly evaluate and update lessons as new ways of accessing, organizing, and using information become available.
