St. Johns Country Day School

Heinrich Learning Resource Center

Vision

Educating our diverse community to be effective users of information through comprehensive, quality materials and services.

Mission

St. Johns' Heinrich Library Resource Center provides a necessary link in the dynamic education process by:

  • supporting the curriculum through the collaboration of the information-seeking process and the content-based classroom
  • integrating technology as a process, not just a product, for learning and teaching
  • providing a stimulating, inviting, and accessible environment
  • building a community of life-long learners and readers

History

The Heinrich Learning Resource Center (HLRC) first opened its doors in the fall of the 2003-2004 school year. The center is a multi-function building enabling up to three classrooms, numerous individual students, and faculty members to engage in various educational and research tasks simultaneously. HLRC houses over 20,000 books, a variety of AV equipment, computers, periodicals, and a rotating student art display.

Birthday Book Club

The HLRC Birthday Book Program is a great way to make a lasting impression at St. Johns Country Day School regardless of the student’s grade level. During the student’s birth month parents, grandparents or friends may recognize the student’s birthday by giving a book to the St. Johns library (with a minimum donation of $25.00). Though the books are acquired through the librarian, the donor may specify or request a certain book or type of book for purchase. Alternatively, the library staff will help the student select the book from a collection of new books available. A bookplate inscribed with the student’s name is placed inside the book, which then becomes available for checkout from the library’s permanent collection.
