St. Aidan's Day School Library

Welcome to the Day School Library!                 


St. Aidan’s Day School is one of the only area preschools with a full library of children’s books, fiction and nonfiction, as well as parenting books.  Parents are welcome to visit the library to browse, read and check out books.  The library is in Room 9 on the second floor.  If you arrive at school before 9:00 a.m., you may come in to read to your child and take that opportunity to check out up to five books.  Books being returned can be put on the rolling white book cart located on the left,  just inside the library.


In our effort to catalog our books electronically, to date all of our fiction, nonfiction and parenting/child development books have been added to our electronic database - 3,900 books!  You can view a list of our collection of  books by clicking on the link below.



St Aidan’s also has a wonderful Birthday Book Program, where your child can have a hardback book donated to the school library in his or her name. If you would like to participate in the Birthday Book Program, fill out the form below and return it to the Librarian.

We hope you have a wonderful summer full of books!  Be sure to visit your local library this summer.  They have wonderful events for children as well as a great summer reading program, which encourages children to read books over the summer.

If you have older children, Barnes and Noble also has a Summer Reading Program, where your child can earn a Free Book!
