“The mission of the school library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The school library media program empowers students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and ethical users of information.” – AASL, 2009
The library staff believes that a dynamic, effective, student-centered and learning-centered library media program should be an integral part of the total educational program of the school. We believe the library plays an important part in educating our students to become socially responsible, independent, information literate, life-long learners. We also believe in our role as instructional partners in learning and teaching and in providing information access and delivery.
In addition to books, we offer a variety of other materials, including DVDs, magazines, examination preparation guides, university information, a MAC Lab and wireless internet access, printing and scanning, quiet study areas as well as, group study areas, and of course, research and guidance in finding just the right book for recreational reading.
The JFKS HS Library welcomes everyone: students, staff, parents, and the larger school community.
