Lower School

Augusta Prep encourages in children a love of learning. By incorporating library into the curriculum, students are exposed to books at an early age. The Lower School Library program familiarizes children with the layout of a library as well as the manners expected within.

In addition, students are taught a respect of books, the proper care of books, listening skills, the parts of a book, library organization, the Dewey Decimal system, and research skills.

Lower School students are invited and challenged to join the 100 Book Club. This reading program encourages students to read the books of their choice, in an effort to complete 1000 pages times the student's grade level. Once inducted into the 100 Book Club, students can double their number of pages and strive for the 200 Book Club!

Upper School
The Baird Library in Morris Hall is a busy, academically stimulating environment where students may read, study, do homework, or conduct research.

Over 200 searchable databases support faculty and student research.

100 & 200 Book Club

Through the years, more than 1,300 students have joined the 100 and 200 Book Clubs at Augusta Prep. A student reads 1,000 pages multiplied by his or her grade level to join the 100 Book Club. If a student reaches the goal for a second time, that student then joins the 200 Book Club.

For 14 years, Dr. Michael Rogers has sponsored this program by providing needed funds for the T-shirts that are given to students as they achieve entry to the Book Club. Dr. Lee Andrews also has become a co-sponsor.
