The mission of the Overbrook library is to connect with students as individuals by providing resources and instruction for differentiated learning styles and ultimately facilitating self-motivated, life-long learning as well as to provide a peaceful area to read, write, and reflect.
The Overbrook library media center supports and enriches the curriculum with a collection of materials that meets the needs of the students and faculty it serves.
