Welcome to the Penn Yan Middle School Library!

The Penn Yan Middle School Library program is committed to preparing our students to be informed, productive, and concerned citizens in an information‐ driven society. We encourage students to continue learning throughout their lives, to become ethical users of information and supporters of intellectual freedom, to develop an appreciation for literature and a love of reading. We help them acquire the necessary critical thinking strategies and evaluative skills to do so.

Mrs. Pamela Simmons
Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers.  And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.
- Laura Bush
