The mission of the Baldwin School Libraries is to facilitate the development of students, faculty and staff as effective and responsible users of ideas and information; and to foster a lifelong habit and love of reading and learning.
Three separate facilities welcome all members of the Baldwin community for research, study and recreational reading. The Early Childhood Center (ECC) Library, Lower School Library and the Anne Frank Library provide appropriate materials and support designed around the needs of their particular users. Print and electronic materials are carefully selected to support the curriculum and instruction in their use is provided within the context of units of study.
The Libraries are open and staffed Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended hours in the Anne Frank Library for grades 6-12 until 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Technology is an integral part of a 21st Century Education. At Baldwin, we carefully balance the use of technology with our time-tested expertise in the education of young women.
We implemented a 1:1 laptop program to allow teachers to develop new and engaging ways to interact with curriculum materials and to provide students with the tools they need to be fully engaged with their learning. We focus on key learning outcomes such as creativity and innovation, collaboration, critical thinking and communication to guide our use of technology.
In Baldwin classes, students can expect to use a variety of tools to create visual presentations, analyze texts, write papers, conduct research and experiments, design programs, communicate with peers and experts in the field. Whether they’re learning to code or learning to write, Baldwin students learn to use technology appropriately and effectively.
