The Roger J. Bass Library, named after our long-time head of school and Founder, buzzes with student activity throughout the day. Our Librarians Anne Bingham and Aimee Miles support information literacy goals throughout the curriculum, advocate for reading, and provide a space to inspire and promote individual and collaborative learning.
At UPrep, students learn to lead a life of learning. The Library houses more than 10,000 books and periodicals and provides web-based access to the library catalog and over a dozen research databases. Students are well-supported in their quest to develop a thesis and support it with specific, meaningful evidence. Our students learn that when they are asked to explore everything, they discover they can achieve anything.
Located centrally on campus, the Library also serves as a community gathering space, hosting course events such as mock congress, board meetings, parent education speakers, and more. The Library is open Monday through Friday when school is in session, from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Free after-school supervision is available daily in the Library/Commons from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
Access the Library catalog, databases and resources by logging into the Veracross Portal and clicking on "Library Resources."
Our library staff help students find information sources, distinguish fact from opinion, explore fiction, and even play the ukelele!
