The Pershing Middle School Library serves over 1,600 students and is part of the Houston Independent School District
. In January 2007, it was moved with the rest of the school from its home for the past fifty years to its new, beautiful, spacious, state-of-the art facility. The library houses approximately twenty-thousand books and materials. Twenty-eight workstations with Internet access, the library catalog, and other software programs are available for student use. Two stationary LCD projectors with screens are available for the librarian's and teachers' use as teaching aides.
