Welcome Mayans,

This website was created to keep students and parents updated on the latest news and information about Montgomery Middle School's library and to provide resources that will help students succeed in school.

Check out the "I Love to Read" page for book recommendations and our e-shelf of new titles. Or take a look at my book reviews and share your thoughts on the "Book Blog" page. Read on Mayans and see you at the library!
