The May H. Baker Memorial Library serves as the focal point of a student’s academic life at Valley Forge Military Academy & College, acting as a gateway for both independent and collective learning, research, and discovery. We provide quality resources and services to our cadets, faculty, and staff, helping to facilitate access to information, technology, and education. Resources meet the needs of VFMAC cadets, faculty, and staff, focused primarily on the cadet experience, academic curricula, the five cornerstones, and military history.

Librarians interact with cadets, faculty, and staff in meeting information needs and achieving instructional goals. Faculty collaborate with librarians to fulfill and support research-based curricula. Library staff monitor evening study hall activities.

We are members of the American Library Association (ALA), including the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), Reference & User Services Association (RUSA), the Library & Information Technology Association (LITA), the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA); we are also members of: Hosting Solutions & Library Consulting (HSLC), the Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA), the Tri-State College Library Cooperative (TCLC), and the PREP Consortium.
