ABOUT

The Delbarton School Library is home to a collection that includes over 6,500 print volumes, more than 70 magazine, newspaper and online periodical subscriptions and 40 electronic databases. These resources provide students the opportunity to enrich their research with scholarly works from throughout the academic world.

Five Group Study Rooms and the Media Lab give students, staff, and faculty new ways to incorporate developing methods and technologies into their classes, coursework, and research. The library has the flexibility to accommodate a growing number of functions for both individuals and large or small groups.

The library staff of Mr. Kent Manno and Ms. Maria Lorenzo are responsible for building and maintaining our print and electronic collections while providing supplemental materials and research assistance for students and faculty. All of the digital assets and tools available through the Delbarton Library are accessible to the community via the Delbarton Library Schoology group.
