James Lane Allen Elementary Library

Welcome to the JLA Library Media Center
  • Library schedule

    JLA students visit the library on a five-day rotation schedule with their homeroom classes. On each day of the rotation schedule, a block of time is open to allow teachers to schedule an additional 60-minute session as needed.  During NTI-2DL, Mrs. Barnes will visit each class for thirty minutes on a five-day rotation schedule. 

    Student checkout

    Children check out books when their classes visit the library. In addition, students who need to exchange library books sooner may visit the library anytime the classroom teacher allows. During NTI-2DL, students will not be checking out books from the JLA Library. Students will find multiple ebook resources by selecting the Students Resources tab on this page. Please return any books from the 2019-2020 school year to the JLA office. 


    Lost or damaged library books must be paid for so that new copies may be purchased for the enjoyment of other students.
