Welcome to the JRMS Library Media Center and the 2017-18 School Year!

*Stay tuned during the upcoming school year (2017-18) for design enhancements in the JRMS LMC as we continue our genrification process and set up our MAKER SPACE area!

The Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School
Library Media Center
seeks to meet today’s informational challenges through active collaboration with instructional and administrative staff and the provision of a welcoming 'learning commons' filled with a variety of interesting resources and opportunities for creating, sharing, learning and discovery or maybe just finding the perfect book!
