The Moser Library is centrally located on the School Site and provides pupils with the opportunity for quiet study and research.  Literary meetings and academic lectures are held here throughout the year, and there are regular displays and exhibitions.

Library staff are always available to help pupils with research or with requests for information and help whenever the Library is open.

The building is named after former Housemaster Edward Branthwaite Moser and was built in 1916.  Moser bequeathed his collection of fine 19th century watercolour paintings to the School, and these are displayed in a gallery adjoining the main Library building.

We also have an Ancient Library, which is generally open after Chapel on Sundays and by appointment at other times.

During the summer, the Library will undergo a complete refurbishment and will reopen for the start of the Michaelmas Term in September 2017.
