21st-century media literacy and research skills


The Bruce and Patrice Buxton Library provides a student-centered, nurturing, and welcoming learning environment where students can successfully and confidently conduct research for school assignments, explore their personal interests, and study with other students and faculty.

Our diverse resources include a physical collection of more than 10,000 books, DVDs, and periodicals that are tailored to meet curriculum needs. The collection extends beyond the physical library space, providing students with mobile access to 28 online databases containing thousands of peer-reviewed journals, reference books, statistics, videos, images, and more, and to thousands of eBooks from our own collection and in partnership with the Commonwealth eBook program.

In addition, students can utilize LibGuides, a content management system used by many colleges and universities, which synthesize our library resources with those found on the Internet to assist students in easily finding reliable information.

Ultimately the library helps our students develop 21st-century media literacy and research skills that prepare them for college-level research and to navigate the information highway successfully.

2020 Contactless and Expanded Online

Falmouth Academy is committed to providing access, instructions, and assistance to a wealth of diverse and reliable resources during this unusual time. The librarian’s highest priority is to enable every student to successfully and confidently conduct research and remotely access resources easily and safely. The library has implemented contact-less access for the 2020-2021 school year. Students may request books online using the Online Library Catalog (Destiny) after logging into their personal school library account.
