The mission of the University Academy library media program is to provide resources that support and enrich the school’s instructional goals and afford opportunities for students and staff to become effective users of information. Library goals are: Instill a love for books and reading, train analytical and fearless information seekers, and expand global awareness through literature and media.

University Academy Library opened in October, 2005. The facility is expansive, most inviting and provides services for some 1,100 students from one library. The collection of over 24,000 volumes is current, correlated to the K-12 curriculum, and focused on students’ needs – academically and leisure reading.
