Library Hours

M – TH: 7:00 a.m. – 2:45 p.m.

F: 7:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Visiting the Library: You are welcome in the library before school (we open at 7:00 am) and after school (2:20-2:45, Monday through Thursday), no pass needed.  During the school day please request an epass from your teacher to visit the library.

Lunch: The Library is open during all lunches to students (please enjoy your lunch in the cafeteria prior to coming to the library), and the Library requires an ehallpass.  Any teacher in the building or the library staff can give you a lunch epass.

Books:  Students can check out up to four books at a time.  Books are checked out for two weeks. We can renew your books even if you do not have them with you.  If we do not have a book you want, we can usually get a copy from another school on loan.  We do not charge overdue fees.  If you owe a book to another school, bring it in and we can send it to them.  If you have lost a book, you can pay the replacement cost or bring a replacement copy in.

Equipment: We have a few graphing calculators available for checkout (first come, first served).  Consumable items, such as pencils, paper, paper clips, etc., are available free for students at our two supply stations.

Printing & Scanning: The Library printer is called JHS-MC-PRN on the network.  We also have a scanner if you need to scan any documents. Ask a librarian for help.

Network and VUE Passwords:  If you forget your password to login to the network or VUE, library staff can reset them for you.

Welcome to the JHS Library!

We are excited to welcome you back in person! If you want to come to the library during the school day (to include during your lunch block), just create an ehall pass. Upon arriving, you will need to also sign in to the area you will be visiting. We’ll be happy to show you around. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions or need help finding something.

Additionally, feel free to contact us for any research needs, off site database passwords, assistance with finding any resources that can help you, whether for school or just entertainment.

As always, if you need some good book recommendations, we would love to help.  If you have specific book requests, feel free to let us know or by writing it on our recommendation white board.
