at John Jacobs since 2006. Reading has always been an important part of her life. As a child she loved going to the library - the school library, the public library and the Bookmobile. Today she still loves the library and treasures the opportunity to help students discover the magic of a good book.
During the school year, our regular hours are from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The library is closed during school holidays.
Our Library's Purpose
The purpose of the John Jacobs School Library is to support our students' education as lifelong learners and readers by putting resources in the hands of students, encouraging students to read, teaching students the skills necessary to evaluate information, and encouraging student responsibility.
Guidelines and Expectations
Behavior and Environment in the Library
The John Jacobs Elementary School Library is a vibrant learning environment. Our students are expected to demonstrate the school rules while using the library resources. They are respectful, responsible and do their personal best whether using the library with their class, a small group or individually. They show a deep commitment to caring for the books, equipment and other resources in the library. When using the library independently, they are expected to bring a pass from their classroom teacher and to use the resources purposefully while showing respect for the other activities taking place in the library.
