Mrs. Amanda Duffy, Librarian

Our Holy Cross Academy library is an inviting space where children and adults come to read, learn and study. Our primary goal is to promote a love of reading and help our students to discover the world that books can open up for them. Our librarian and all our teachers promote the wonder of books and guide our students to become lifelong readers. 

Come join us at our Bookworm Central Spring 2019 Book Fair, located in our library! 

Start thinking about your Summer Reading List and get your books now! 

This book fair will be from May 3rd to May 10th!

Motivating children to read is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers. Research has shown that children who are motivated and spend more time reading do better in school.
