The Mission of the Peebles Library
The mission of the Peebles Elementary library media program is to enable students and staff to become lifelong learners and effective users of ideas and information. To accomplish this mission, the library media specialist and classroom teachers cooperate in planning and providing units of study which integrate information skills with classroom content. Resources and activities representing a diversity of experiences and skills assist the students in becoming skilled users of information. The program also will emphasize the value of reading for pleasure and the appreciation of literature.

Ms. Jennifer Maddox
Jennifer Maddox is the librarian for Peebles Elementary Library. This is her 25th year in education and 7th year as a librarian. From an early age, reading has been a passion of Mrs. Maddox. Her favorite quote regarding the importance of reading is, “Reading gives us a place to go, when we have to stay where we are.” Growing up far away from town, reading books did exactly this for Mrs. Maddox. It allowed her to travel across the world, to the future and past, and once or twice to space or beyond! If you would like to see all the places you can go by reading a book, drop by the library and see Mrs. Maddox!
