PXU Library Mission Statement:
To ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information; students are empowered to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information to prepare them for college, career and life.
Central Library is, in many ways, the heart of Central High School. Central Library leads PXU in both print and digital (e-books & audiobook) circulation. We strive to assemble the best collection possible for staff and students. In addition to promoting reading, we also teach students how to conduct research, a prerequisite skill for students wanting to go to college. We are constantly striving to improve our service for staff and students.
