Welcome to the St. Sebastian Parish School Library!
The Helen Barry Hamlin Library at St. Sebastian Parish School is dedicated to promoting the love of reading in each student, faculty member and parishioner! We have over 9,000 books spanning the genres of adventure, biographies, comics, graphic novels, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, religious, self-help, how-to, cooking, poetry and many more! We have something for everyone, so please stop by and browse our selection. We are always adding new titles to our library and they want to be checked out!
Thank you for the gift of books that we can use to learn, to inspire others and to praise your name. Help us
today to focus, learn, and make the best choices to challenge ourselves to become better students. Thank
you for our beautiful library that is filled with knowledge and inspiration.
