The newly renovated Geier Library supports the mission of Berkshire School by teaching our students the skills necessary to thrive in today’s complex interconnected world and by developing a collection of print and digital resources that support the academic, athletic, artistic and recreational goals of the entire community.
Centrally located on campus, our library is a warm, welcoming destination for students, faculty, staff and their families - a space for academic studies, relaxation and leisure reading. Small groups are welcome to use the library; individuals may find a quiet spot for study and teachers often schedule meetings with students or colleagues.
Our professional librarian and library technical services staff offer individualized support for projects or research assignments and help with the selection of independent reading books. The Information Technology Department is conveniently located in the library and provides technical support for students and faculty on an as-needed basis.
Our library houses an up-to-date print collection of fiction, nonfiction and reference books. This collection, combined with our exceptional online resources, magazines, newspapers, journals and DVDs, provide the Berkshire Community with the necessary resources to complete academic work and to pursue personal interests.
We have more than a dozen Mac computers with a wide range of software applications and three centrally located charging stations to help our students stay connected to the information they need. Our newly redesigned library webpage has links to all of our print and digital resources, which can be accessed 24/7 on or off campus. A workstation with a networked printer/copier is available for student and faculty use. In conjunction with the Information Technology Department, the library also circulates iPads, laptops, Kindles and offers noise-cancelling headphones and graphing calculators for in-library use.
