What's New in the Library?

Introducing the PHS Tech Team

We are so fortunate to have this knowledgable group of students to assist us with our technology issues and needs. Please don't hesitate to call the library if you have a technology problem or if you would like to schedule time to meet with Tech Team member to help you with a bigger project. There is a Tech Team member available to assist before and after school and each hour of the school day.

The Librarian - A Classroom Resource

Please don't forget that I not only can help you acquire classroom resources, but I'm available to help you in your classroom as well. This year I'm back in the building full-time, so please consider collaborating with me. Whether it's to help with brainstorming project ideas, to present researching tips or book talks to your students, to assist with a video project--you name it. I am eager to work with you!
