Welcome to the ASPV library web page.
Students, staff, and parents are invited to visit the ASPV libraries to browse the collection, check out materials, do class-related research, study, and use the computers. Your school librarian, Miss Jenny Orr, is responsible for the libraries’ role as a literacy and information hub for supporting student achievement. Our libraries enjoy both an Elementary and High School section.
We provide a variety of books and magazines as well as computers and Wi-Fi service in our libraries. Our total collection includes over 13,000 titles of books and audio visual materials. Our print magazine selection includes over thirty titles. We have an online library catalog, Destiny, as well as the Ebscohost database, both can be accessed from anywhere that has internet connection. Both the High School and Elementary sections are wired for computer stations.

8th Grade English Project
The students have been reading a novel called The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle which is a story about a thirteen year old girl in 1832. She is sailing from England to America and she is having the adventure of a lifetime!
The class had to create an artistic representation of mood in the first half of the novel. They had to incorporate five words or phrases that demonstrate the mood of the novel within their piece.
Miss Jenny's comments
What do libraries, museums, concert halls, and places of worship have in common?
They are all shared, common spaces where people come together and seek a higher level of knowledge or even consciousness. They also happen to be among the most coveted architectural commissions that exist.
Now, our ASPV libraries may not compete with the New York Public Library, or the Guggenheim, but I am very proud of what we do have.
I am so grateful to our English Teacher, Miss Fenton, who has collaborated with us by bringing exhibits of student work to the upper school libraries.
The student's work is amazing. They are so creative and colorful.
Please stop by the upper school library and take a look!
We have these titles available as well as titles from Open Response Questions on the AP Literature Exams.
