On July 10, 1972, the Benedictine Abbey School – Muntinlupa was inaugurated, having Fr. Roberto de Jesus as the founding director. It started with 78 preschool boys and girls and was the first non-graded private school in the Philippines.
The Grade School Library first opened in 1973 with a head librarian and an assistant librarian. It was located at the center of the hexagonally-shaped St. Benedict Building that measured five hundred seven (507) square meters.
Since the Bedan community has been growing since it first opened, a new Grade School Library was constructed from 2015 to 2017 to accommodate learners in Basic Education. At present, it is housed on the Upper Ground Floor of Our Lady of Montserrat Building. Gamified area, discussion rooms, and nature-themed storytelling area are some of the new library’s interactive sections.
The newly-constructed Grade School Library was blessed and opened on November 6, 2017. It is managed and supervised by the head librarian, one licensed librarian and three library assistants.
