Florida Teens Reads Voting is over and the winner is...

Students who read any of the 15 FTR titles for this school year were asked to vote for their favorite one. By casting their vote online, they had a chance to win a $10.00 iTunes gift card. Plant High School students choose Thin Space by Jody Casella as their favorite and Dawn Patel was our grand prize winner!

Testing in the Media Center shouldn't keep you from using our resources!

Continuing into May, EOC tests are being given in the media center. Unfortunately, that means limited access to the media center as students are using the computers for testing. However, our ebooks and online databases are always available, 24/7. Here are a few ways to access our resources:


  • The PHS Media Center Home Page (you can use the link in this newsletter under "Stay connected with us 24/7".
  • The Plant Media Center Edsby Group: look for it under "groups" in Edsby
  • The Virtual Library
  • Axis 360 ebooks

And, please stop by to see if we are open. You never know. We don't test every day or every period! :)
