Library Media Center

Trevor has Library Media Centers on the Lower School and Middle & Upper School campuses to serve students in a constantly advancing digital age. Their purpose is to cultivate children’s inherent love of literature and encourage students to become lifelong readers and effective users of information. Now more than ever, it is important to teach students how to navigate and evaluate print and online resources, utilize new technology, and perform quality independent research.

The Library Media Centers provide a rich and diverse collection of books and other media to bolster the Trevor curriculum and support student curiosity. The Trevor Library Media Specialists collaborate with faculty to incorporate the resources into classrooms while focusing on research strategies, information literacy, and reading programs and events. The Centers are open before and after school for families to check out books, and for students to work on class projects both independently and collaboratively.  The Library Catalogs and Online Databases and Resources are available through the Trevor Portal.
I give Trevor all the credit in the world for my son’s reading level. Trevor makes it a priority—in the classroom, in the library, and at home.

Lower School Library Media Center

Trevor’s youngest readers enjoy weekly library classes where they are exposed to a wide variety of literature, authors, and genres through storytelling and games. After sharing stories and group activities, students browse the collection to select books that are of interest to them. Because parents play an integral part in fostering children’s enthusiasm for reading, Trevor welcomes families to check out books before and after school.

Middle & Upper School Library Media Center

The Middle & Upper School Library Media Center's primary goals are to expand and strengthen the love for reading that students gained in the Lower School and to give them the information literacy required to succeed in college and career. Students have access to more than 10,000 print publications including fiction and non-fiction titles, over 15 online databases in various subjects that support the Trevor curriculum, over 2,000 eBooks and Kindles, and access to audio books for texts read in their courses.
