Kuper Academy - Library Resources
Kuper Academy values reading, not only to sharpen the mind, but to inspire creativity and imagination. By providing our students with print materials and electronic resources in our libraries, we are helping to develop learning and evaluation skills to take them beyond Kuper’s classroom environments, inspiring them to think deeply and to dream big.
Both the Elementary Library and the High School Library are rich in resources, and our librarians work diligently to inspire Kuper students to become lifelong learners. Together with the teachers, the Kuper librarians strive to develop critical thinking and promote digital citizenship.
