Welcome to the Pennsylvania School for the Deaf


There's always room for a story that can transport people to another place - J.K. Rowling

Our library resources allow our student to cultivate 21st century skills, global learning and technology integration.

Our library is an integral part of information, literacy, reading and student achievement. Students and staff can access a wide variety of print and non-print materials to support their individual interests and needs. We have more than 24,000 items in our student collection.

Our state of the art computer work stations provide a comfortable environment for reading, working and pursuing research. Access to Pennsylvania's Power Library resources is available.

Our library connects closely with classroom units drawing on student passion and curiosity, with a clear focus on keeping our growing collection relevant.

PSD hosts two book fairs per academic year through our partnerships with Scholastic, Inc., and Reading is Fundamental (RIF). Both campus and online campaigns yield free reading materials for our students.
