Welcome to the Library

  • The Phillips Middle School Library is dedicated to empowering students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and effective navigators of information and technology. This is supported by:

    • Providing equitable access to books, materials and information technologies in a flexible learning environment.
    • Creating a virtual and physical shared space for knowledge construction, collaboration and inquiry-based learning.  
    • Collaborating with other educators to design project-based learning experiences that infuse multiple literacies and 21st century skills.
    • Providing instruction to support and enrich the curriculum and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas. 

    A diverse collection is a critical component of the library. The Phillips Library provides students and staff access to variety of fiction, non-fiction, reference, graphic novels, and biographies. The reference section includes both print materials and online databases. Current periodicals and magazines are available for check-out. In addition, there is a professional collection for use by faculty and staff, as well as DVDs for curricular use by teachers.


  • The Phillips library is currently closed to browsing, but is holding curbside service. Curbside pick-up of library books will be available every Wedneday from 2:30 to 5pm. Find information on placing a hold for a book on the Curbside Pick-Up page. We also have digital e-books and audiobooks available through the Sora reading app. Please check out the Reading section of the library website to find online resources you can use from home.
