The Wheeler Library
Today’s students need a modern library—a space that balances research and reading with action and collaboration. The Wheeler Library at our New England boys school and its campus neighbor, the Ciongoli Center for Innovation, give Fessenden students the best of those worlds.

Wheeler Library on the Web

In addition to its physical holdings, the Wheeler Library website is a dynamic resource that helps boys complete school projects or pursue budding interests. Librarians curate timely digital content that supports learning in the Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School, and they publish resources for parents and teachers [KH6] , too. The website is accessible wherever students are—in the library, the classroom, or at home.

More than just a reading nook

More than Just a Reading Nook

The Wheeler Library has many spaces for day and boarding school students who want to read, reflect, and study. The Lower School Library offers a range of comfortable spaces where boys can snuggle up with a good book. In the Middle and Upper School space, boys can lounge in armchairs or gather at study tables.

But it’s not always quiet in the library. Many areas are used for group work and socializing, too. A Lower School collaborative classroom space and a Middle and Upper School “Think Tank” area host classes and other school activities. The library often hosts community events like Library Teas, yoga classes, guest speakers, art exhibits, and the Spring Book Fair.
