About Our Library

The mission of PGHS/KAMS Library Media Center is to support curriculum and standards; to promote literacy and the enjoyment of reading; and to ensure that our patrons in the school community become lifelong learners who can find, evaluate, and utilize information in a variety of formats in an effective, critical, and responsible way.

Library Guidelines While At the Library:

PGHS/KAMS Library is open 20 mins before school begins, during lunch breaks, and 20 mins after-school ends. While at the library, all students are expected to follow our Library 3B’s rules that are posted on every table in the library. Due to limited seating we ask that students come to the library with a school related purpose, such as:

  • To do quiet study or complete homework assignments

  • To check out a book or textbook required for class

  • To use a computer for school related assignments

  • To attend a library related event and/or library club meeting
