The Washington Latin PCS library strives to be the school’s center of inquiry and research. An open and welcoming learning environment, the library is designed to be enticing, accessible, and intuitive to all students and staff.   The library program serves the school’s mission by providing materials and instruction that support our challenging classical program. Additionally, the library offers curriculum support, collaborative research instruction, specialized space for technology access and meetings, and mixed-use spaces for quiet reading and study, classroom instruction, and small group work. Our full-time librarian, Sereena Hamm, offers unique knowledge for literacy enhancement, sharing the joy of reading fiction and nonfiction books with students.  Please come visit to check out a book or get a reading recommendation, or email Ms. Hamm with any library questions.
