The Boyden Library and librarians support the intellectual growth, personal exploration, and creative opportunities offered to Deerfield Academy students by providing comfortable spaces for individual or group study, and a rich collection of books, Ebooks, research databases, periodicals, audio books, DVDs, and CDs that meet the diverse curriculum and leisure needs of students and faculty.
The library is named in honor of Frank L. Boyden, headmaster of Deerfield Academy from 1902-1968, and his wife Helen Childs Boyden, a chemistry and math teacher. The library opened in 1968, the year that Mr. Boyden retired.
Due to construction, the Boyden Library is temporarily located in the Mods behind John Louis Dorm. See a campus map here.
