Engelhard Family Library (US)

US Library

Welcome to the Engelhard Family Library! The library is a safe and welcoming space for all members of the Potomac community.  In the library one can collaborate, create, and learn.  Our goal is to ensure that all students, faculty, and staff have the opportunity and skills to access, read, and evaluate materials.

An integral part of the instructional program, the library is dedicated to providing the Potomac School community with the best resources and service. With over 9,000 titles, numerous online databases, and access to newspapers, magazines, and journals, our librarian plays a critical role in supporting the curriculum and advancing the use of technology in the classroom, all while assisting students as they become independent learners.
