The Pittsburgh Library

The Pittsburgh Library serves as the heart of the Middle School and Upper School. Located in Masters Hall, the library takes it name from a group of active former alumnae from the Pittsburgh area whose special interest was the library.

The library is bright, airy, and conducive to study and research needs. The library’s collection includes over 20,000 books; more than 55 magazines, journals, and periodicals; and computerized access to several hundred more. A number of subscription databases allow students and faculty to research their areas of interest—history, science, art, music, social issues, and more. There are study carrels and seating for several groups to work collaboratively, and a special middle school section addresses the needs of the beginning researcher.

The School is a member of The Westchester Library System, which allows our students access to the collections of a wide range of public and academic libraries in the metropolitan area. A professional librarian is on staff fulltime to assist.  

Remote access is available to the electronic card catalogue (Destiny Library Manager) and the subscription database. The library is open seven days a week:

Weekday Time
Monday through Thursday 8:25 a.m. to 9:50 p.m.
Friday 8:25 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Saturday noon to 5:00 p.m.
