Library Mission Statement: The Payette Lake Middle School Library's mission is to assist and support the education of our students through various media sources, reference materials and books.
The Payette Lakes Middle School Library is a great place to read, discover new authors and genres, research for school projects, and collaborate with fellow students. The library serves many purposes in our school. Some classes come to the library for silent reading time, and often students use the library computers to take tests. Please remember to always enter the library quietly, to always walk, and to always treat the library space and materials with respect. I am here to recommend or help locate books, to help with Accelerated Reader issues and questions, and to show students how to use our library resources to research topics. I love academic databases (like LiLI offerings...see below)!
