Library

At the center of the Paul R. Chesebro Academic Building and the academic community is The Hun School of Princeton library.  With sound-proof rooms for quiet study, massive tables for group work, computer kiosks and Wi-Fi, the library is an attractive campus space for students during free periods, between classes, and after school. 

A fully circulating and lending library, The Hun School is home to over 50,000 books, 4,000 videos, 200 periodical subscriptions, 60 electronic databases, 5 daily newspapers, and an ever expanding Hun School archive.  Services are further extended through the use of Inter Library Loan, a database of public and academic libraries from across the United States.  A courier service delivers requested loans twice a week, linking The Hun School library with these partner libraries, making it possible to borrow any available book.

Library services include orientation for all sixth grade and ninth grade students.  Beyond that, the facility is staffed with three highly skilled full-time staff members.
