Welcome to the JMS Media Center! 

Mission Statement

The library media center's mission is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. The mission is accomplished by:

  • providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats

  • providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas

  • working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students

Internet Access

REMINDER: No AUP (Acceptable Use Policy or Parental Permission Form) on file  = no assessing the Internet or DISCUS databases  

Student usage of computers in the library media center must be consistent with the Mairon County School District "Acceptable Use Policy" and library procedures. These apply before, during, and after school. Any student using the  Internet or assessing one of the DISCUS databases must have a parent signature on the completed form on file in the media center.  Access to the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Computers in the library media center are for educational purposes only. Students must have parental permission and supervision of a faculty member in order to access the Internet.
