The PCS library houses approximately 5,000 unique titles of elementary, middle grade, and young adult reading materials, with books and electronic resources suiting early emergent readers to the highly fluent. The collection is roughly divided into half fiction and half non-fiction. The collection serves our diverse student population well, with an emphasis on print-based literature and non-fiction written in formats and language suiting a broad realm of reading levels and interests.
