WELCOME TO THE LIBRARY!
The Junior School library provides a place for readers and researchers of all ages to 'think expansively' through the reading of and reflection on quality literature, the ability to find information that enables understanding, the active engagement in literature lessons and collaborative projects, and the sharing of books and their ideas. These pursuits allow us to thrive as a community of readers in the library and classrooms.

Welcome to the Junior School Library. I am Ms. Phyllis Guering and have been the lucky librarian at the Junior School for the past seventeen years. I received my Masters in Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to coming to Shady Side Academy, I have worked in a variety of school settings. I have worked in a college library, a preschool serving children with autism and related disorders, and in a variety of preschool and pre-kindergarten classrooms.
I am assisted in the library by Mrs. Mary Aiken. In addition to being our library clerk, Mrs. Aiken is also responsible for the Junior School Before School Program, which is open to students from 7:30 to 8:00 in the morning to accomodate our working parents.
