Gould Academy’s Sanborn Family Library is in the center of Hansom Hall, serving as the core of the academic program. The library marries 175 years of academic tradition with the 21st century to create a state of the art resource, focused on collaboration, research, and creativity. The diversity of space encourages and supports students in acquiring patterns of life-long learning in this complex media rich age
Collaboration is at the core of library work and the robust wireless access and 1:1 laptop program makes any study carrel, comfortable chair, or table for two an extended classroom. As well, students can sign out conference rooms with Apple TVs and high resolution projectors. During evening study hall, the peer staffed Writing Center and World Language Center are centered in the Owen Learning Commons.
We offer a robust collection of fiction and non-fiction titles, DVDs, e-readers, audiobooks, periodicals, newspapers, electronic databases, and student subscriptions to NoodleTools, Voicethreads, and Turnitin. Proudly, we partner with MARVEL, Maine’s unique virtual library, and provide access to thousands of magazines, newspapers and databases beyond our own. Library orientation and material use is coordinated between the librarian and teachers through a variety of classes and projects.
When you visit campus, we hope you stop by to check out recent best-sellers, hunt down information, or just relax with a magazine or newspaper.
