Beyond Books: The Galloway Library

Welcome to the Galloway Library, a hub of activity, exploration, scholarship, and discovery. We offer books and digital resources for all ages, are a springboard for research and inquiry, and sponsor special events to celebrate reading. Take a look at what we do by visiting the Early Learning Hub and the Middle and Upper Learning sites linked to the images below.

Our Mission

The Galloway Library is a welcoming, innovative library that inspires imagination, cultivates connections, and celebrates learning.

Our Vision

In addition to providing connections to a wide array of print and digital resources for faculty and students, The Galloway Library sponsors a variety of activities and events. Students at all levels participate in Reading Bowl, with Middle Learners competing at the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl competition. Early Learners come to a Late Night Read In of reading-themed activities. Middle Learners students stay up for an annual All Night Read In, and Upper Learning students hold regular poetry readings. The library also sponsors visits by children's and young adult authors. Some authors who have spoken recently are Jacqueline Woodson, Robert Hoge, Marie Lu, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Adam Gidwitz, Ridley Pearson, Laurie Halse Anderson, Gene Luen Yang, and Andrew Smith.

Our Values

  • We support Galloway's unique 4D approach to learning, encouraging each Galloway student's journey through daring, deliberate, and dynamic discovery.
