The Peter B. Benedict Library provides both Middle and Upper School students a pleasant place to research, study, and read. The service-oriented teaching library offers an array of print, electronic, video, audio, and computer resources in order to meet the wide-ranging needs of students and faculty at our Vero Beach high school. The facility also houses the Wahlstrom Writing Center offering individualized writing assistance.
The mission of the Saint Edward’s Library media program is to create a stimulating learning environment in which all individuals are empowered to become independent life-long learners. To this end we strive to teach our students to use information and technology effectively and ethically, and to love reading and literature. The library’s programs, resources, and services support and enhance the curriculum and intellectual life of the school, providing a resource-rich student-centered multimedia environment.
The library staff welcomes opportunities to provide assistance, instruction or training that will enable students and faculty to use library resources effectively. They are also available to collaborate with teachers in the school to design units, lessons, and learning strategies to meet the varied needs of students
