 The PHS Library Media Center is at the core of effective learning and plays a vital role in collaborative planning and curriculum development.  The mission of the library media center is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interests in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students. To become effective users of information, students must have frequent opportunities to handle all kinds of information. Locating, interpreting, analyzing, synthesizing, evaluating, and communicating information should become a part of every content area. The classroom teacher and the library media specialist are actively involved in identifying the learning needs of students, developing teaching units, and guiding students’ progress in lifelong learning.
