The Roland M. Miller Library

Welcome to your library!

IMG_0388Our library is one of the school’s busiest spots.  Here you’ll find students and staff working side by side– studying, creating, collaborating, or simply recharging.   It’s also the school’s most welcoming space with comfy bean bags, the best desk chairs in the entire building, a beautiful outdoor reading park, and an impressive skylight that brings in natural light.  Modern and up-to-date in every way, we boast 25 sleek desktop computers, a sturdy printer, access to hundreds of databases, and a helpful, knowledgeable staff to assist with tech concerns and assignments.

Consider the library your go-to spot.  Browse our shiny new hardcovers, check out our graphic novels, play a game of chess with friends, or try one of our coloring books and unwind after a tough exam.

This is your library.  We’ve got you covered.

Embroidery in the Sun

My favorite moment yesterday was looking up from my work to regard this student sitting peacefully in the library, sun falling across her while quietly embroidering a project for her art class.  So much of the school day is so rushed, yet this moment — as she deftly and methodically brought the needle and thread across her canvas — caused me to pause and admire her focus.  Wishing everyone a similar moment of creativity and calm in their day today.

Welcome back to the LIBRARY!

Your school library is OPEN and we couldn’t be happier!  After being closed last year, we are so happy to see students enjoying the space!  Sixth and seventh graders are learning how to find items, and high school student have been quietly working here during the day.  We are so happy to have our doors open once more and are eager to connect!  Hooray!



Where can I curl in the Berkshires?  When was baseball integrated?  Why are there dimples on a golf ball? Find the answers to these questions and more in your school library! #spiritweek

Make Your Own Valentines in the Library

Stop by the library this Thursday and Friday to make your own valentine! We’ll supply the paper, scissors, and glue; you supply the love and affection.  Who would you make one for, you ask? May we humbly suggest: your mum, dad, gram, pop, next door neighbor, dog, cat, hamster, friend, shy kids who sits behind you in math class, or maybe a favorite teacher.


November is Picture Book Month!

“A book, being a physical object, engenders a certain respect that zipping electrons cannot. Because you cannot turn a book off, because you have to hold it in your hands, because a book sits there, waiting for you, whether you think you want it or not, because of all these things, a book is a friend. It’s not just the content, but the physical being of a book that is there for you always and unconditionally.”

Mo Willems

Picture books combine text and artwork to tell a multi-faceted story. They are some of the first books we read and help to teach literacy and visual literacy, making them perfect for readers of all ages!


Hey, Kiddo

Author Jarrett Krosoczka visited both students and staff at LMMHS this past spring.  After hearing his story, students were eager to read his forthcoming, autobiographical novel titled, Hey, Kiddo, which will be available on October 9th.  Take a look at the The New York Times article about it, and head to the library after the 9th to borrow a copy.

Library Visitors

This spring we were honored to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Pinkney to speak with our sixth grade students.  The Pinkneys are world-famous authors and illustrators (Mr. Pinkney recently won the Caldecott Medal for his adaptation of The Lion and the Mouse); they enthralled students with their artwork and their stories.…

Sledding, Anyone?

This winter has been brutal, though the cold and ice have made conditions perfect for sledding, an enormously  popular sport at the turn of the century.  This past fall, local historian and author Cornelia Brooke Gilder visited Lisa Wespiser’s junior English classroom to share her research on life in Lenox during the…
