Welcome to the Library!
Welcome to the John H. Pitman High School Library Media Center, where we encourage active study, exploration, and discovery of our world! Our mission is to support the curriculum of John H. Pitman High School and to encourage and support the educational and personal goals of our students. Our aim is to ensure that all students, teachers, and staff members are effective users of ideas and information through reading, research, technology, and exploration of resources in a variety of formats.
Our Library includes 30 computer workstations with Internet access and word processing capabilities, Wi-Fi service for ChromeBooks, online resources, and printers for student use. Students may check out library books at any time with their student ID cards. In our quest to encourage and support the development of literacy and reading skills, we provide students with a wide range of reading materials to meet students' needs, in an effort to foster a lifelong appreciation of books and reading. There is a vast and diverse collection of non-fiction and reference books covering all academic areas including literature, philosophy, sociology, sciences and mathematics, fine arts, history, and biographies. We also offer an extensive amount of volumes for recreational reading, such as fiction, personal growth, fitness, colleges, and careers.
