The Connelly Library, named for a generous gift from the Connelly Foundation, was designed as an “information commons”—a flexible and functional simultaneous-use facility where students, faculty, and staff can gather and collaborate within the context of academic research, using the latest tools for information retrieval, storage, and presentation.
The library’s 5,000-square-foot main room contains comfortable seating areas, tables to accommodate classes and student research, a large circulation desk, and stacks filled with over 7,500 volumes. Courtesy of grants from the Hamilton Family Foundation and the Benedict Foundation for Independent Schools, a computer lab with 24 student workstations is available for class use. Additional spaces house a large group work room and offices for the librarians.
