PCA Library Media Services
PCA's Library Media Centers offer quality print, AV and digital resources as well as assistance for teachers and students. The system strives to help students develop the skills needed to analyze, evaluate, interpret and communicate information and ideas.
Plano Campus PreK through Sixth Grade classes visit the library weekly. Developmentally appropriate lessons and story time for early childhood are part of the library curriculum. As students learn to discern truth through critical analysis of printed material, lessons are designed to further their research skills. Students through 6th grade are expected to spend some time each week reading for enjoyment in their classrooms.
The library offers various reading opportunities to further instill a love for reading and learning. Books are at the heart of the library. Book talks, visiting authors, and the acquisition of curriculum-centered books with student appeal are some of the ways reading is encouraged throughout the year.
Multi-media computers are available for students to use for research and enhance library skills.
The Plano Campus Upper School Media Center provides students with an atmosphere where “loving to read” and “becoming lifelong seekers of Truth” are sought and encouraged. With that in mind, the Library Media Center seeks to offer a wide range of resources. We offer assistance, instruction, and an environment where students are encouraged to read for excellence, develop their minds and think as mature believers.
As our students grow in discernment, we desire to help them apply critical-thinking skills to their reading and information-seeking behaviors in response to the PCA curriculum. Our instruction, assistance and materials are intended to supply students with the information they need to gain a big picture perspective of the world and engage their culture with biblically-sound thoughts, ideas, and truth.
