Throughout the year, the librarian presents a "Meet the Author" program series . Since September 2006, numerous authors have addressed the student body including: the Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz; Zlata Filipovic, author of Zlata's Diary and Stolen Voices; U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky; Benjamin Ajak, one of the lost boys of Sudan; Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History; Greg Mortenson and civil rights activist, educator, and author Melba Pattillo Beals.

The library also contains computers for library research; comfortable study spaces for groups engaged in project work and tutoring sessions; as well as quiet spaces for individual students to read, do homework, and relax.
