Welcome to the Hulbert Taft, Jr. Library

The Hulbert Taft Jr. Library plays a central role in the educational and cultural life of the school. More than just the repository for Taft’s collection; the library is a space for collaboration, research, exploration, and entertainment. It is home to a dedicated staff of Librarians and para-professionals who facilitate student learning and foster creativity, guided by the Library Portrait of a Graduate. The library has at least one librarian on duty to provide reference and/or instructional assistance during all open hours.
