To align with curriculum and reading levels, McDonogh maintains one library for each of its three divisions: Lower School Leah Watts Dawson Library, Middle School Krauss Library, and Upper School Kiplinger Library.
Libraries respond to the school's purpose and objectives, based on the school's philosophy and mission statement, by maintaining a comprehensive collection of print and electronic materials:
Librarians work closely with classroom teachers to choose diverse materials that support classroom needs and develop individual interests and abilities.
Library catalogs are available to the public and are accessible via the McDonogh Website.
Each library maintains a class-sized group of computers for students and faculty to access the library catalogs and online resources.
The library hours are as follows when classes are in session:
After Hour Returns - Library materials for any McDonogh library can be returned to the after-hours drop box located in the Kiplinger Library lobby of the Allan Building.
