PHS Library



The culmination of Teen Read Month was the unveiling of the new Little Free Library on the PHS/PMS campus. A national movement, Little Free Libraries offer readers the opportunity to "take a book-leave a book". Students are invited to take a free book from the little wooden house, enjoy it, and then return that book or replace it with another.  The project was funded by a grant solicited from the Community Foundation of East Mississippi by librarian Jamie Calvert.




The PHS/PMS Library continues to celebrate Teen Read Month.  Students who check out books for the next two days have the opportunity to "Trick or Treat" for school supplies and prizes!





Congratulations to Owen Daly for winning the first give-away in the PHS/PMS Library during Teen Read Month!  Owen checked out a book to read for pleasure and correctly guessed the number of candy corn pieces in a jar.  His prizes include hours of enjoyment from a good book, plus the jar of candy!




To celebrate "Teen Read Month", the PMS/PHS Library will have several activities during the month of October.  The first fun give-away is happening now in the library.  Stop by the library and check out a book for a chance to win a prize!





In order to celebrate back-to-school and spark students' interest in reading, the Philadelphia High School/Middle School Library offered students the chance to win free tickets to the Philly/Neshoba Central football game. Students who checked out books were given the opportunity to place his/her name in a hat for a random drawing for a free ticket.  The lucky winners were as follows:

High School: Joshua Willis

Middle School: Markasia Dupree

Congratulations to these students!  The PHS/PMS librarian is Jamie Calvert.




The library was the site for the recent district-wide reading/book fair. Students created unique and colorful boards representing a chosen book. Congratulations to the winners!



Philadelphia-Neshoba County Librarian Jacob Starks recently visited the library to issue library cards to interested students.  He also took this time to teach these students how to access electronic books through the public library. Ebooks are available for free through the public library to all library patrons who have a library card.



In order to commemorate Veterans Day on November 11, the PHS/PMS Library would like to recognize our current and former armed service members. All students, faculty, and staff members who have a family member who served or is currently serving in a branch of the military are invited to bring a picture of the serviceman/woman to the library.  Mrs. Calvert will make a copy of the photos and will post the pictures in the hallway so that all students can honor our heroes.


Teen Read Week is October 19-23.  Students, keep checking the website and listen to morning announcements for information about fun activities taking place before school next week to help us celebrate reading!

*Check out our pictures of the fun activities on the Philadelphia High School Facebook page!



Attention Parents/Guardians!  Students in grades 7-12 have been given a letter for you to sign giving students permission to apply for a library card from the Neshoba County Public Library.  This card will provide students the opportunity to check out eBooks, as well as print material from the public library.  Ask your student about his/her letter today! Please call the library with any questions.
