The Barnard Academy library is an active place. All students have an opportunity to attend library classes each week. The students meet for literature enrichment and library and research skills on Wednesdays. BA participates in the Red Clover and the Dorothy Canfield Fisher book programs. We also participate in Reading Is An Investment, a program developed by the Vermont Office of the State Treasurer. The library space is also used for various meetings and special learning sessions. Parents are welcome to come into our library and check out books. The librarian is available two days a week, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award Program. Our students in grades four through six can participate in the DCF Award Program. Follow the link to read more about the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award.
The Red Clover book program introduces students to the best picture books of the year. The Red Clover Award is co-sponsored by Mother Goose Programs, Windham County Reads and the Vermont Departments of Education and Libraries. Each year our students are introduced to ten of the best picture books of the year. Children in Kindergarten through grade four have an opportunity to vote for their favorite Red Clover selection. The link will take you to the official Red Clover site where you can read about each new book. We purchase these ten books each year in the Spring when the new list comes out.
