The mission of the PTHS library media program is to ensure that students are effective, creative, ethical, critical and enthusiastic users and producers of information and ideas. Our inquiry-based program fosters not only the skills, but also the dispositions and responsibilities needed for lifelong learning. We aim to foster a passion for learning, with the hope that our students will not only learn how to learn, but also enjoy and independently pursue the process.
Standards Based Program
Teacher-Librarians work collaboratively with classroom teachers, department supervisors, and other specialists, in order that all students are given the utmost opportunity to meet curricular goals and standards. Our Library Program's emphasis on inquiry, communication, collaboration, creation, and critical thinking, in addition to media, information, and digital literacies, are key components in national and international education standards.
