The Towers Library is named for Graham Towers, the first Governor of The Bank of Canada, a long-time member of our Board of Governors, and SAC student from 1911 to 1913. The Towers Library is at the heart of the educational experience of St. Andrew’s students.
Our library is a place to learn and discover. Students and faculty find a common space for academic and personal interests. We host a variety of activities, including classes, literacy initiatives, advisory meetings, research help, and an academic support system, the Centre for Learning and Teaching.
Towers Library offers both print and digital resources, including databases and LibGuides. Library staff work alongside faculty to develop independent and collaborative projects, and to ensure that library resources are relevant, up-to-date and in line with the needs of a digital generation.
We know that literacy is linked to long-term success. We also believe that all reading is good reading; fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, magazines, and newspapers are available for the boys to read. During the school year, we host weekly Upper School and Middle School book clubs, and we offer author visits, pop-up libraries, and reading lists.
