Our Mission The mission of the PMHS Library Media Center is to inspire our students to learn, create, work together, and discover. Our Vision The PMHS Library Media Center will be the center of information and discovery at our school, where students and staff can visit to pursue their goals and passions. We will provide relevant resources for research and pleasure reading, as well as innovative programming and tools to ensure our students are all future ready. Our goal is to inspire everyone to learn, create, and discover.
Sources of Information The PMHS Library Media Center has thousands of print books, thousands of electronic books (ebooks), and multiple databases for free use by staff and students for pleasure reading and research. Staff and students use their Active Directory information to search our catalog and to check out ebooks. Please see library staff for log in information for our databases.
- Students may check out as many books as they wish as long as they do not have outstanding items overdue or lost.
- Books check out for two weeks at a time and may be renewed as long as no one else is waiting on that item.
- Ebooks check out for one week and automatically return to the cloud at expiration. They can be checked out again as long as no one else has placed a hold on that ebook.
- We do not charge overdue fines, but if a book is lost or badly damaged, it must be paid for or replaced with the same item.
- Parents/guardians may limit what their own students can check out by filling out the Individualized Library Access Plan at any time.
- Students may come in to the library media center to use the computers on a pass from their teacher or during their lunch.
- Students must have a signed AUP on file at the school to use the computers.
- Students may print for 10 cents per page. We only offer black and white printing.
- Our library is a place you can study, research, collaborate, think, and of course, read!
- We ask that you have your cell phone on vibrate or silent so as not to disturb others.
- Food and drinks can only be enjoyed in the tiled cafe area. Please do not eat or drink on carpeted areas.
