The primary mission of the Horace Mann Lower Division Library is to teach students how to become independent thinkers and life-long learners who possess a love of literature.


The Horace Mann Lower Division Library collection consists of approximately 24,000 print titles, electronic encyclopedias, online databases, and a growing collection of audio & ebooks. These titles and databases include all major subject areas to support our curriculum and general interest. Students and faculty have access to magazines and newspapers, as well.
