High School

Library Media Center

Welcome to the JGHS Library Website!

Our Vision: The library media center is devoted to fostering a culture of inquiry and a love of life-long learning across all grade levels and content areas. The library seeks to be the heart of the school, a place where students and staff find a welcoming environment for collaboration, thoughtful study, and discovery of interests and abilities. Students will develop the necessary reading, writing, and research skills to become successful participants in our community.

Our Mission: The mission of the library is to engage students with interest-based texts, to foster inquisitiveness and a sense of wonder, to assist students in developing critical thinking skills, and to create strong researchers who are ethical users of information.

Our Tools and Resources: We have a variety of resources available including print and digital media, databases, audiobooks, extensive book and video collections, a computer lab, tablets, chromebooks, and laptops. More are being added every day so...
