Welcome to the JHS Library Learning Commons, a place to

Read, Think, Create, Collaborate, and Share.


A message from Mrs. Calcutt: 

During our time away from school as a result of the Coronavirus, some of you may be wondering how to continue reading after you have finished the library books you checked out. Several vendors have graciously offered access to free ebooks while you continue to learn and read from home during this time. I will be listing these sources for free ebooks here on our library page for you. If you have questions about how to access these books, you may email me. Keep reading and above all, stay safe! ~Mrs. Calcutt
