Welcome to the HH Poole Library! I'm Janice Raspen, our school librarian. This year is my 20th in Stafford and my sixth at Poole. I love middle schoolers and middle school books! Our library assistant is Mrs. Dee Rish, and she and I are happy to answer any questions you have. We are here to help you.
Students are welcome to visit the library during homeroom every day and during class time with a pass from their teacher. Our library has 16 networked computers and a printer for student use. Our book collection numbers over 16,000, and we also subscribe to dozens of magazines and the Free-Lance Star, Fredericksburg's local newspaper.
The library sponsors several reading programs throughout the year: Mustang Readers' Choice for sixth graders, Cafe Book for seventh and eighth graders, and Battle of the Books, for all grades. Click on the links for these programs to learn more.
