Welcome to the Cardinal Mooney Information Center

The Cardinal Mooney Information Center was completely renovated in 1997, as a result of the “Campaign for Excellence,” which was supported through alumni, parents, and friends of the school.  Included in the Information Center is a computer classroom that classes use for presentations, research, and interactive learning.  The lab is equipped with fifteen computers, along with tables, chairs, and a white board.  Inside the library, there are sixteen additional computers as well as a variety of working or sitting areas.  The collection contains more than 15,000 volumes of reference, fiction, and non-fiction works that support the curriculum and student interest.  Our faculty has access to hundreds of educational videos to supplement class work.  Students and faculty have access to online databases for research.
