Welcome to the Jane Long Elementary Library

Mission Statement

The mission of the library media program at Jane Long Elementary is to collaborate with teachers in enriching the curriculum so that students become lifelong learners who love reading and can evaluate and effectively use information from a variety of sources.

Goals and Vision

It is the goal and vision of Jane Long’s Library Media Program to:

  • Provide an attractive, welcoming environment.
  • Provide a well-organized and comprehensive collection that meets the needs of the faculty and student body.
  • Encourage collaboration between the media specialist and faculty to integrate information, media literacy, and technology skill into all curricular areas.
  • Maintain a collection that is continually assessed and plan steps for changes and improvements.
  • Insure that the media program and its services are meeting the needs of both the faculty and the students.

Student Checkout and Classes

The library is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 2:30 pm. Students visit the library to check out books, and library classes are conducted.

Students are allowed to check out 2 books per week unless they participate in the RAH program. Students may not check out new books until the previous ones are returned or renewed.

Library Activities

The library sponsors two book fairs each year. One in the Fall and one in the Spring. The proceeds from these book fairs help to buy books and magazines for our school.

In addition, the library sponsors several voluntary reading promotions programs throughout the year.

Volunteers

Library volunteers are an essential and valuable party of our library program. They help to label and shelve books, run the circulation desk, and allow the librarian to devote more time to teach children the valuable skills of enjoying literature and becoming information masters.

Please contact Mrs. Cortez if you are interested in volunteering.
