MAKING YOUR LIFE A LITTLE BIT EASIER

Mission


Our mission at MHS Library is to help every student develop a love of reading (whether that be for graphic novels, e-books, traditional texts, and even magazines), become a skilled user of ideas and information, and explore the world through print and electronic media.


  • Jaime Parker, Librarian
  • Julie Mosty, Library Media Specialist


We are here to assist with:


  • Accessing databases, e-books, and video streaming sites
  • Researching and locating materials within the scope of Irving ISD and beyond
  • Project ideas and technology integration
  • Planning, collaborating, and co-teaching

Let us know how we can help you throughout the school year. Our job is to make your life a little bit easier in regards to ordering materials, research planning, locating new technologies, and collaboration.
