The Joseph R. Hyde, Jr. Library Learning Center is a powerful resource for our students and faculty, offering a comfortable place for research, study, and collaboration. Research instruction begins with an introductory course to seventh graders, and librarians support faculty and students by regularly soliciting new materials and assisting in assignments and projects.

The library features open and classroom computer labs, individual and group study rooms, and traditional library research areas and seating.  The Hyde Library’s collection includes 35,000 print books, as well as thousands of e-books, audiobooks, and videos. We currently subscribe to more than 50 college-level databases.

Parents, students, and faculty access library resources under the Library Resource Board in OwlHub, the school login area. Everyone can access our online catalog.
Harkins Archives
The Harkins Archives, available by appointment, hold school-related print publications, photographs, and memorabilia.

Library staff are members of the American Library Association (ALA), the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), the Association of Independent School Librarians (AISL), as well as Tenn-Share, a cooperative network of Tennessee libraries, and the Memphis Area Library Council (MALC).
