Jane Addams Middle School Library

Library: How It Works

CURRENTLY, the library is open for scheduled classes only.  (No drop-ins or before/after school visits at this time.) 

Can people recommend books that the library should have? Yes! Please recommend great books for other JAMS students. You can email the librarian send a message through Schoology.

You can also recommend useful websites and tech tools for JAMS students; we’ll post links here on the library webpage.

Do you charge library fines? The school library does not charge late fines for overdue books. If a book is lost, damaged, or destroyed, you may have to pay the full replacement cost. Please speak to the librarian about a lost or damaged library book! 

Returning Books

Many ways to return books:

  1. Drop them off in the blue return bin outside the main doors of Jane Addams, Monday-Friday. (all cohorts)
  2. Place them in the return bin in the hallway, outside the library, on the second floor, inside Jane Addams (cohort A and B). 
  3. Give them to your LA teacher, and I’ll pick them up from your classroom.
  4. Drop them off when you drop off your district laptop. 

Thank you for helping to get books back to the library!
