2022-2023 School Year

  • Welcome back to a new school year at North Pontotoc High School and Middle School! 

    The library has a new look. See the photos section. Updates include new furniture and reading spaces, a new printer, new audio-visual equipment, and docking stations for Chromebooks.

    Busy students can scan the online card catalog with a QR code, put books on hold for pick-up, and contribute to a wish list of books they would like to see available in the library.

    Poetry Out Loud and Library Book Club are beginning the week of August 22nd with a focus on history in English Language Arts.

    Incorporating history and art instruction in ELA includes a special project on oral histories in Spring and a library mural project that features Mississippi history.
