Library

The Allen and Elizabeth Becker Library is a vibrant center for research, study and collaboration at the heart of St. Stephen’s campus.

The St. Stephen's Becker Library is a welcoming environment that provides a wealth of print and electronic learning resources to our whole community.

Becker Library provides computers for general use and wireless service throughout the building. Our onsite computer lab is a useful space for classes, meetings and conferences. We take great pride in our print collection and enjoy making reading recommendations to all.

Our librarians teach information literacy skills, collaborate with instructors, and assist classes and individuals with all aspects of research. Throughout the year, we plan special programming for the community. Library outreach includes orientation sessions, academic strategy sessions, author visits, student field trips, fun literary events and book discussion groups.

Becker Library Book Fair

Our Book Fairs provide fun shopping opportunities and wonderful reading selections for the whole St. Stephen's Austin community!  A portion of the proceeds benefits the library and provides funds for new books and other resources for our students.  These great events are made possible by the many talented volunteers of the Friends of Becker Library Committee.  Join us for our ONLINE Holiday Book Fair December 3-6, 2020 and also for our spring Book Fair on March 25 & 26, 2021, which coincides with Grandparents' Day!  

 
 

Becker Library Literary Festival

Another exciting event sponsored by the Friends of Becker Library is the biennial Literary Festival.  On January 27, 2021, a wide variety of notable writers will visit St. Stephen's virtually and give presentations about their writing to our students. Every student attends two presentations of their choice.  We are grateful to our chair, Marianna Sher, who is helping to bring this enriching literary event to our community!
