Welcome to the Northampton Middle School

 Library Media Center Website!

Hours: 7:00-2:30
About the Library Media Center: Our brand new facility opened in the fall of 2015.  To be 21st-century  ready, students need to know, not only how to find information, but also how to evaluate, present and create it.  We utilize the newly available technology of this facility to meet these goals. 

  In addition, the Library Media Center works together with staff and students to identify and support readers with a wide variety of topics in fiction and non-fiction. 

     Here is where people,
            one frequently finds
Lower their voices
                 and raise their minds.
                                         -Richard Armour

I read because one life isn't enough, and in the pages of the book I can be anybody.
I read because the words that build the story become mine, to build my life.
I read not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I am just beginning myself, and I wouldn't mind a map.
I read because every journey begins at the library, and it's the time to start packing.
I read because one of these days I am going to get out of this town, and I'm going to go everywhere and meet everybody--and I want to be ready.

                -Robert Newton Peck 

The previous Library served the children in the Northampton Area School District from 1970 to 2015.
