Robertson Library

KCD's Robertson Library is located in the center of the JK–8 building. The library is divided into two main areas: the middle school/upper school side and the lower school side. Each section contains circulation desks and catalog computers. The librarians’ office is between the two sides.

Hours

Monday–Friday, 7:30 am–4:00 pm during the school year.

Circulation

The standard checkout period for students is ten school days. Weekends, holidays, etc., do not count. Faculty and staff may check out materials for a month. Materials may be renewed. Parents are always welcome to use the library and to check out materials. All materials are due in prior to the end of the academic year. Students may check out books during class visits or when they come in on their own. Lower school students may come in to return or check out books during Morning Room from 7:30–8:00 a.m., but to stay or visit after 3:05 p.m., they must be accompanied by a parent.
