Calarco Library is where students, faculty and staff come for quiet study, research, and leisure reading.  Our librarians support Hopkins' mission to develop the habits of mind of scholars as the foundation for a lifelong love of learning by teaching students how to be effective, ethical users of information. We do this by collaborating with classroom teachers to identify opportunities to teach information literacy skills within the context of actual assignments, and by providing access to resources that support the Hopkins curriculum.  

We appreciate the generosity of our supporters!  To make a gift, please visit the Hopkins Ways to Give page.
Gifts at all levels are meaningful and appreciated.
