Elwood E. Leonard Library

The Leonard Library offers the Lincoln Community a welcoming environment to reflect, study, collaborate, access information, and cultivate passions for reading and learning. We directly support Middle School and Upper School students with reading and research needs, and actively work with faculty to embed critical thinking and vital information skills into the curriculum. Need help? Ask a Librarian!
