Welcome to the Jr. High Library!
All About Your Media Specialist/Librarian...
I have been with the Pottsville School District for 25 years. I began my adventure by teaching 6th grade. I taught in the 6th grade for 4 years
. I continued my education at Arkansas Tech University and received my masters degree in Instructional Technology. I became the Middle School Media Specialist (Librarian) in 1999.
In 2006-2007 school year the Jr. High School was completed and I transferred to the Jr. High as Media Specialist.
The Library . . .
We are planning an outstanding year in the Jr. High Library.
Students are allowed to have 3 books checked out at one time. Students are scheduled to come to the library one day a week.
The Students are coming to the Library with different core classes this year. I am introducing a new learning activity called Marker Spaces. The students must use higher order thinking skills to accomplish the task associated with the various activities.
On Thursday and Friday the Library is open to everyone I call this "free flow."
On occasion a student might lose or damage a book if this occurs then the student is responsible for the replacement of the book.
Monday through Friday
Open 7:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Closed 11:30 AM – 12:05 PM
Open 12:05 PM – 3:45 PM
Please remind your students that the library is closed during 7th/8th grade lunch time! I have morning duty on Wednesday.

Scholastic Book Fair
The Schoolastic Book Fair is a way of helping our library to add the latest releases in books. Please support the book fair. Jr. High has two fairs a year one in October and one in February. A theme is introduced to excite the students. Contests are available for the school to enter to win prizes. The photo below is from 2007-2008. Our school won the contest and received a visit from Rick Riordan, and $2,000.00 dollars for books!
