Welcome to the JLA Library Media Center
  • Library schedule

    JLA students visit the library for 1 hour 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. 

    Library Schedule for 2022 - 2023

    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. If a student finishes reading his or her book before the next library class, the student may visit the library for new library books at the classroom teacher's convenience. Students will find multiple ebook resources by selecting the eBooks tab on this page.


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