The mission of the Gene Pike Middle School library is to ensure that all students and staff are effective users of information and to promote reading as a lifelong pastime.

Librarian - Mrs. Wells
Hello Pike Panthers! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as your librarian this semester.  I have 13 years teaching experience, all at the middle school level. I am certified in Elementary Education, Secondary Reading and have my Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences.

I have been a reader for as long as I can remember.  I am passionate about encouraging others to read and find their perfect book! My favorite genre is Historical Fiction but my reading choices vary between all genres, depending on my mood.

In my free time I read, listen to audiobooks, watch my oldest son play hockey, play video games with my younger son and walk our dog Roxy.  Our family loves watching hockey games and we are huge Dallas Stars fans.

Library Hours

The GPMS school library is open 8:10 a.m. - 4:15 p.m. daily.  Students and faculty have the opportunity to use the library before and after school.  Students may check out our digital and audio eBooks 24/7.  Please feel free to contact me at my email above if you have questions after school or on weekends.  I am proud to offer virtual hours and services to the Pike MS community.
