The mission of the Peaster ISD school library is to be a commons area where students can engage in reading, research, innovative thinking, problem solving, and collaboration
Peaster ISD libraries vision is to provide a space where students can have access to printed as well as online materials. We strive to keep our collection current and provide many different resources to help students across the curriculum. We see our space as a commons area for each campus, providing a place where students can collaborate, problem solve, create, explore, and of course read. We always promote the necessity of reading but more importantly ENCOURAGE a love of reading. Our daily goal is to connect the right book to the right student in order that they experience the thrill of a story and in turn a love for life long reading.

"Here we are now starting the 2019-20 school year. I am so excited for this year to start. There are lots of changes taking place in Peaster, and a lot of growth. Students can look forward to a new and exciting start. Along those lines, we have new books to explore, and new stories and adventures to read on all campuses. And don't forget about our ebooks and audio books out there; check out the app SORA if you haven't. Makerspaces are also ready to go, and many more being planned.
I am looking forward to the busy sounds of the library as students return from summer vacation. I hope you all had a blessed summer with family and friends.
My family vacationed in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal this summer. WOW....it was amazing, if you ever get a chance to go it's worth every penny. See you soon.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
