Garrison Forest empowers students to realize their full potential and live lives of purpose.

Garrison Forest School


Welcome! Garrison Forest has two on-campus libraries that serve the entire School community, from our youngest students to the faculty.

With an array of print and digital resources accessible on campus and from home, the two libraries on campus are active centers for learning and reading, research and collaboration. The Garrison Forest librarians, Missy Wells and Siobhan O’Boyle, are committed to promoting curiosity and inquiry in their students, the research habits needed to find great information and a love of reading.

Research Process

The librarians at Garrison Forest are interested and involved in the research process, and committed to teaching students the necessary steps to investigating topics, finding great resources and correctly citing their sources.


The digital offerings in the library continue to grow, as ebooks and databases are added to our resource lists. Students can search for ebooks in the library catalogs; they must have a password to start reading.
