Decatur Classical Library

WELCOME to the Library at Decatur Classical School.

The Library at Decatur exists to enrich our school community. Run by parent volunteers during the CPS school year, students and staff can take advantage of library resources within the library space at the school, and any time online. 
Online Library 
CPS students, teachers and staff can take advantage of an extensive FREE online collection of books, of all genres here.  Our school is listed at Stephen Decatur Classical School. The Database tab gives you access to nineteen different search engines that students can use to research topics relevant to schoolwork. 
Donate to the Library.
We are always on the lookout for donations of new or gently used books. We've made it easy this year, with our Amazon wish list. These are books we'd like to include in our library space. If there are books that are not on this list, but you feel they'd be a good addition, we're happy to accept them.
