Welcome to the Bishop Hendricken Library & Media Center!
Our library is designed to provide an academic space for students, administrators, faculty and staff. It is a multi-purpose facility which is available to all members of the Hendricken community to pursue academic work appropriate to one’s function in the school.
The Bishop Hendricken Library/Media Center is decorated with an Irish Celtic theme reflecting the Irish heritage of the first Bishop of Providence, Bishop Thomas F. Hendricken, for whom the school is named and the Christian Brothers, originally from Ireland, who served the school for 40 years. Our library is a very special academic place designed to enable our school community to access appropriate school-related information and work in an aesthetically pleasing environment.
