The Library at Almaden Country Day School is our campus hub for learning, laughter and friendship.

Students from Kindergarten through 5th grade visit the library every two weeks, and our Middle School students experience the library through an eclectic mix of elective classes.

ACDS provides students and teachers support from a full-time librarian who delivers a comprehensive and unique library curriculum adhering to the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) Standards for the 21st century learner.

The ACDS Library Program

In addition to her duties orienting students to library resources and providing guidance with library research, our librarian works with individual teachers and classes to assist with their assignments, extending the walls of the classroom by more than 15,000 volumes!

Our online catalog — Destiny Quest — makes our collection accessible to families from home at any time.

And wait, there's more in the ACDS Library

The Library at ACDS is more than a rich resource for learning and research on campus. It's also the center of fun, enriching activities including author visits, our popular twice-annual Book Fair, the Birthday Book Squad (BBS), and a popular place for children to gather and socialize at lunch and recess with our friendly librarian, Mrs. Arguello. The library at ACDS is truly the hub of student life on campus.

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers."
