The Ruth Wallace Memorial Library serves the Newton School students, staff, and community. With over 6,000 volumes, the library is committed to providing quality resources for research and recreational reading, as well as 21st century information and media literacy skills. Housed in the school annex, the library is open to all members of the Newton School community and has an online link to the Morrill Memorial Library.
Our mission statement: The library exists to support, to implement, to enrich and to vitalize the educational program of the school. The library promotes learning through independent and collaborative use of library information and literature materials. The library is concerned with fostering the intellectual and social growth of each individual by providing every student with the opportunity to develop at his or her own rate using the materials through which he or she learns best.
The library is named for Ruth Wainright Wallace, a counselor at Camp Kenjocketee in South Strafford and friend to Rosa Tyson. She taught at Miss Porter's School in Framingham, CT for many years before retiring to Strafford. She volunteered her time and expertise to catalogue and organize the school library collection at the Newton School. She died in 1975 and the library was named after her in 1980. A portrait of Ruth Wallace, gifted to her mother, resides in the library named for her.
The library subscribes to the Gale family of electronic databases through the Vermont Online Library. These databases are an excellent resource for research, and can be accessed from anywhere. Please see the librarian for the password.
