At the Michael Granger Library, we are dedicated to inspiring a passion for books and stories in every Lower School student.

In addition to this core goal, we aim to ensure that each child who passes through our library has the ability to independently use a library catalog to do research and find recreational reading material.

We expose students to a wide range of children's literature each week. From wordless books to biographies, from emergent reader titles to complex chapter books, we intend to make literature come alive.

Through the continuing generosity of the Granger family, we host authors and illustrators throughout the year for special assemblies. These gatherings give children a peek into the magic and hard work that is the world of children's book publishing. 

Partnership with Parents

We also hope to be a resource for parents as we all work together to raise passionate readers. To that end, we invite you to explore this page and discover books in our catalog, access a curated list of reading-related resources, and utilize the databases to which Potomac subscribes.


Find tips for reading aloud, public library websites, materials on DEI, visiting authors and illustrators program, and more.
