Library

  • The library is a place to come for independent research, classroom projects, pleasure reading and special events. 
    We look forward to seeing you here!

    Our mission is to support the John Muir High School Mission Statement and Expected Schoolwide Learning Results to facilitate student achievement by providing students access to a collection of relevant, high-quality print and non-print material in an efficient, appropriately staffed library media center to encourage them to become competent users of ideas and information, and prepare for lifelong learning.

     Students may use the library before school, during nutrition break, lunch, and after school.  During the school day, the library is open for class visits and for students with a pass from a teacher. Students will be asked to sign-in when arriving with a pass. 

    *The library may be closed during these hours if a class visit or a meeting has been scheduled.

    All students will be issued a Student ID card with a barcode of their permanent ID number by the Student Services Office Rm. A125.  Don't forget to bring it to school every day.  Replacement ID cards are available in Rm. A125 for a fee.

    You will need this card to check out books and to use the Chrome Book computers.

    There is no limit to the number of books a student may check out. It is up to each individual student how many books they choose to be responsible for.
     
    Magazines and books labeled Reference may only be used in the library.

    Books circulate for two weeks. They may be renewed as many times as needed to complete it as long as it is not requested by another student or needed for a class research assignment.

    Books may be returned by placing them in the book drop at the library entrance or the book drop at the circulation desk.
    Treat the books with care both in and out of the library. Materials must be returned in good condition or there will be a charge.
