The Ford Library upholds the Bosque School's mission to prepare young men and women to become lifelong learners, while also teaching them to value their natural surroundings and their community. For these reasons, in addition to offering a well-balanced reference collection, stellar online textual databases, ample computer access, and attentive staff support, this library serves as a cornerstone of the Bosque School community.
The library is available to students Monday through Friday from 7:30am-6:00pm for research and technology use. Students should see the librarian on staff for any help needed during their visits.
