The PA Library System (PALS)

The primary function of the Pulaski Academy Library System (PALS) is to provide all members of the PA community with access to information, research assistance, and informational technology instruction that supports the educational goals of our school.



PALS’ collection is selected to provide an abundance of quality resources in various formats that are designed to supplement the curriculum.  The integration of the instructional technology and informational resources with classroom instruction fosters a partnership with teachers and ensures that informational technology is an integral part of learning. The ECS/LS Library provides a welcoming center of learning for PA's younger students with hours of operation being 7:40 am-2:50 pm each school day. The MS/US Learning Commons is a resource and research center for PA's Middle and Upper School students with hours of operation being 7:30 am-3:30 pm each school day.
