Fostering discovery and a love of reading

Trinity boasts a beautiful, spacious library ideal for independent and collaborative study.

In harmony with the Trinity High School mission to challenge young women to pursue faith, truth, and knowledge, the Library supports both students and faculty within the curriculum in an atmosphere that encourages thinking and questioning. The Library strives to foster the development of an intellectual curiosity that leads to lifelong learning.
The Library has both print and digital holdings.  Students may check out printed books, eBooks and  eAudiobooks online.  Students may also check out and read books from our Library's Nooks. Additionally, Trinity invests in quality databases for student research needs. Email Ms. McGreal for login information.

The Library includes a classroom area with a Projector and presentation podium.  Faculty and students can reserve this area for presentations, film viewing or meetings.  Computers are available in the Library for student use.  Students may check out Nooks, cameras, camcorders, and recording equipment through the technology department.

The Trinity Library hosts numerous events throughout the year ranging from author visits to student film premieres to festivals and poetry slams.
