Central to any high school education is teaching today's students how to gather and discern information for tomorrow's issues. The Moody Memorial Library, dedicated in 1970 and named in honor of Texas businessman and philanthropist William Lewis Moody, Jr., offers students a place to retrieve both print and electronic information for the challenging academic program at Strake Jesuit.

An extensive online Reference collection
Fiction and non-fiction books that cater to all types of reading interests and needs
35 current magazine subscriptions
The once private Kielsing Collection's first editions and archival materials
