This book club is open to all faculty and staff at PHS. Please contact one of the Librarians if you want to join!
-We are open Monday-Friday from 7:30 to 3:30
-If a student needs access to computers or items for research, we can open at 7:15 and stay as late at 4:00 (the student needs to let us know a day before just to make sure one of us will be here that late or early)
-We are open for students during lunch and at breaks if they want to check out books, chill out, or print something for a class.
**We know everyone is super busy and overwhelmed! We are here to assist you. We can help teach lessons on researching, databases, Google Classroom, or just about anything you are teaching. Tell us what you are working on and we can create a fun lesson/activity we can collaborate on together and still meet your standards.
-We can help you provide a change of scenery from the classroom. Bring your class down for the day. We have a screen, projector, and laptop for presentations. There are 8 iMacs for student use and there is the computer lab next door with 37 computers.
