Library Resources

 

 

 

      

Kuper Academy believes in the importance of reading, not only to sharpen the mind, but to inspire creativity and imagination. We understand that by providing students with books, magazines, periodicals, and other academic referencing materials, we are helping them learn how to learn and we are giving them the tools that they need to dream big.

 

Both the Kuper Academy elementary library and the high school library have many resources to offer Kuper students and our librarians work diligently on a daily basis to help students nurture the desire to become lifelong learners. With a total of over 6,000 holdings entered to date in the Mandarin Library Automation system as well as a librarian in each library working to improve the collection and services each day, there is much to discover!
