Thank you for visiting the Peachtree Ridge High School Media Center Web site! Here in the PRHS Media Center, we are dedicated to sharing what we know best about books and more, and we are dedicated to helping students develop the information literacy skills necessary for postsecondary education. Our mission in the media center is to teach students the skills they need to access, interpret, and manage their information needs not only today, but for their lifetime. We hope to encourage the development of life long learners, collaborate with the faculty to promote learning across the curriculum, teach information literacy skills, advocate a love of reading and of libraries, and provide a collection of materials reflective of the needs of our teachers and students.
This web site is designed to serve as an "after hours" extension of the Media Center, so please use the links to access information about research, databases, MLA citations, book recommendations, tech tools, and other useful tools that will help you.
