North Platte High School | Librarian
My name is Patty Birch. I am the School Librarian for North Platte High School. I’m originally from Elkhorn, and graduated from Elkhorn High School. I received a B.S. Undergraduate Degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University, with an Endorsement in Library Media. I received my Master of Library Science Degree from Emporia State University.
I’m married to Rich Birch. He works in the field of Law. We have two children. James works with global payroll, and Christopher is an actuary.
I began my career at Irving Jr. High, in Lincoln, Nebraska. Before working in the North Platte School District, I worked at Mid-Plains Community College, in the library.
The mission of the NPHS Library Media Center is to support the curriculum of North Platte High School by providing access to current, adequate, and appropriate information, and to help students, teachers, and staff become effective users of information.
