About the Library
Hours: 7:00 a.m. to 2:40 p.m
The library at Page Middle School strives each day to achieve its goal to have all students become socially responsible independent library users, life-long learners, and to develop a love of reading, in addition to supporting the instructional program and curriculum of the school with an emphasis on information literacy. To meet these goals, the library offers a collection of more than 11,000 books, plus an extensive collection of magazines, audio books, videos, and DVDs. The library’s collection also includes online sources such as Grolier Encyclopedia, ProQuest, Nettrekker, and Tennessee Electronic Library. Materials selection is made based on the developmental needs of the students, faculty, administration, and staff.
To provide maximum access to the its resources, the library operates on a flexible schedule in which teachers sign up to bring in their classes to check out books and/or to do research at the teacher’s point of need. Students may come to the library at any time during the school day as long as they have an agenda signed by their teacher giving them permission to do so. The library is open from 7:10 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. or later as needs arise on school days. The library staff is committed to providing enthusiastic support of reading in all formats as a means of lifelong learning, enjoyment of reading, a penchant for discovery, and success in the classroom.
