"The goal of the school library is NOT to get books back but to get READERS back." Doug Johnson


Rising 6th graders and current 6th and 7th graders are encouraged to participate in our summer Reading Challenge. Follow this link for all the details! Participants can read 1-4 of the grade level titles and then participate in a lunchtime book discussion to be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card.

You can search for books and place holds from the library catalog.

When your hold is ready, we'll send you a message through Canvas.

Your hold will be available for pick up in the library. 

After 5 school days, if your hold is not picked up, we will re-home your book(s).

This is a great way to support the library and honor your student!

I am Lisa Nocita, a.k.a. The Library Goddess, your affable, helpful library media specialist. I began teaching in 1992 and started teaching at PSMS in August of 2008!


Before becoming a library goddess, I was a high school Spanish teacher. My undergraduate degrees are from KU (Rock! Chalk! Jayhawk!) in Political Science and Spanish.  I also hold graduate degrees in Curriculum & Instruction from KU and Library & Information Science from Emporia State. I hold teaching certificates in Spanish and Library Science. I earned my National Board Certification for Library Media Specialists in 2014. While I loved teaching Spanish, my true passions are helping others develop curriculum, doing research, playing with technology, and, of course, reading!  

I am married with 2 children grown and flown, one graduated, employed, and married, and one who is in law school!  I enjoy kayaking, travel, reading contemporary adult fiction and thrillers & YA fiction, and spending time in my happy place on the North Fork River.  My weaknesses are fun office supplies (especially sticky notes), coffee, chocolate, and bacon, should you ever need to get on my good side! :). I seriously dislike having my picture taken or appearing on video. If I won the lottery, I would spend lots of time at my little cabin on the river, have more cats, and I would take long trips to San Diego, Sedona, Europe and South America, and, maybe, open a bookstore with a cupcakery attached! Unfortunately, since I rarely play the lottery, that’s unlikely to happen! Well, maybe, the cats part! I look forward to getting to know you!
