On Thursday, September 13, English teacher Carol Fullington and her AP Language and Composition class will be taking a field trip to Indiana University in Bloomington. The students will visit the Wells Library, where the students will learn how to use the online catalog system and how to utilize their available resources at college libraries.
The students have been assigned an author study and can check out works by their author or critical reviews of their work from the library. The group will leave PHS at 8:20 a.m. and will arrive back to the school by 2:30 p.m.
Fullington hopes to rid the idea that a college library is scary and reiterate that students can use their resources as often as they need.
“Libraries often appear to be imposing buildings, and students are afraid to check them out,” said Fullington.
