The beautiful Phillips Library was built in 1973. It was made possible by generous gifts from the Phillips and McCormick families, the Hills Brother Coffee Foundation, and alumni. The Library is a magnificent building and learning space for all students. Its glass expansive wall and panoramic view to the northwest was the vision of Mrs. Phillips, and was based on the Gordon College library in Massachusetts. All Orme students and faculty enjoy learning while taking in the spectacular views of the Orme Campus.
The Phillips Library was remodeled in 2014, and included a major technology update. With more than 20 computers, a collection of more than 18,000 books and reference materials, and an impressive collection of student and professional fine art, Orme’s library is a modern hub for all students. Each school evening the library fills, after a busy day, for Study Hall. Our faculty are available for one-on-one advising, and on-staff librarians are also available. The library takes on a collaborative feel as students prepare themselves for the rigor of college.
