Moody Memorial Library

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 study independently or in groups and to retrieve both print and electronic information for the challenging academic program at Strake Jesuit.
