Reading Lists

There is a thriving reading culture in Loreto Beaufort. The reading lists which are linked to here are just a sample of popular books which are in the library. They have either been recommended by the students, the librarians, teachers, or authors who have come in to speak to our students. We hope you have the pleasure of getting to read some of them.
