Boyden Library

The Boyden Library supports the intellectual growth, personal exploration, and creative opportunities offered to Deerfield Academy students by providing research help and instruction, comfortable spaces for individual or group study, and a rich collection of books, e-books, research databases, periodicals, DVDs, and other materials 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, and was completely renovated in 2015.
