The Katherine Potts Library

Fostering a Love for Reading in our Younger Students

The Katherine Potts Library is home to nearly 6,000 volumes of picture books, juvenile fiction, juvenile nonfiction, and children’s magazines, and serves students from the primary program through grade 6. Located in Odenheimer Hall, The Katherine Potts Library was dedicated in 2009 to the memory of Katherine Potts, a young Doane student who lost her battle with a difficult illness. Katherine loved books, and her loss united the school community to raise the funds to redesign the lower school library space in her memory.

In addition, Doane Academy has partnered with the Burlington County Library System to serve the broader research and reading needs of all our staff and faculty and all students from age 3 through grade 12. With these library accounts, all members of the Doane Academy community have access to the holdings of the 9 regional libraries that make up the Burlington County Library System. This includes books, DVDs, eBooks, streaming videos, and research databases. Students can access the electronic holdings of BCLS from school laptops or from their own computers at home.

The goal of our library curriculum is to make sure students learn the skills they need to use and enjoy libraries. This is accomplished with grade- and age-appropriate activities throughout the year. Additionally, classroom teachers are offered support in any research investigations and projects that students will be doing within their classrooms.
