The mission of the Prospect Mountain High School Library is to engage students in reading and literacy and to teach them to be independent and savvy users of information.
The library offers materials in various formats including books, newspapers, magazines, graphic novels, ebooks, reference materials, DVDs, video tapes, and audio books.
The PMHS Library education program consists of instruction for students and school community members in either a group or individual setting on the following:
* Use of the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC)
* Book Talks
* Assistance with locating materials
* Library Lessons (in classes and in library)
* Readers’ Advisory
* Professional Reading Materials
* Assistance with research projects
“Read not to contradict and confute, nor to believe and take for granted, nor to find talk and discourse, but to weigh and consider.” - Sir Francis Bacon

Hello, I'm Mrs. Fraser and I am the Librarian at Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS). I have been teaching at PMHS since its opening in September of 2004. Before coming to PMHS, I worked at Alton Central School for three years. My primary teaching responsibilities include working with the Freshmen Seminar classes, but I actually collaborate with teachers and work with all students on all grade levels. I teach research skills and how to access the best resources and I assist teachers with integrating research into their lessons. My other responsibilities are to maintain the library collection and advocate for literacy at PMHS. I am also a certified Reading and Writing Specialist and an English Teacher. I earned a Master’s in Library and Information Science (M.L.I.S.) from the University of Rhode Island, and a Master’s of Education (M.Ed.) from the University of New Hampshire. I have lived in Alton for 25 years and my husband Wayne and I raised two daughters, both graduates of PMHS. We currently share our lives with a 15-pound pug named Iggy.

My name is Mary Barrett and this is my fifth year as the Library Assistant at Prospect Mountain High School. As the library assistant, I process incoming books, check books out to students, pull books for classes that are coming to the library, and assist students. I have a clerical degree from McIntosh College. I grew up in Alton and have been married to Alan for 31 years. We have two sons, Nathan and Kyle. In my free time I enjoy hiking, snowshoeing, geocaching and spending time with family.
