JHES Library Media Center Mission:
The mission of the JHES Library is to ensure that students are effective users of ideas and information, and therefore, become lifelong learners. It is also my hope to instill a love of reading in EVERY student!


Checking Out and Returning Books:
• Students may check out two books (1 AR and 1 of choice) for a two week period.
• Students are responsible for keeping their books safe and returning them on time.
• If students are not finished with their books, they are able to renew them by bringing their books to the library.
• Books can be returned in the library at anytime during the day.


Library Collection:
• The media center maintains a collection of over 10,000 books, a variety of online databases, magazines, and a growing number of  e-Books.  Computers located in the library are used to assist and strengthen student’s daily academic needs.
• Keeping up to date with technology is extremely important!  We strive to provide our teachers with a variety of technological resources that will help enhance classroom instruction.


Fundraisers:

The media center is involved in several different projects to obtain funding for additional equipment and new materials for our collection.

• Book Fair: The book fair is a big event and a highlight for the students. It is held twice a year in the school library. The first book fair for the 2014-2015 school year will be in December. Please check back for more information regarding the book fair.
• Box Tops for Education: Clip box tops from the many General Mills products and send them to the library.
Grocery Store Receipts: Please send all of your Farm Fresh and Harris Teeter grocery store receipts to the library. This fundraiser allows us to acquire new equipment for the library.
