Where are things in the JHMS Library?

JHMS Library Policies

Loan periods: Books, eBooks, eAudiobooks, and digital magazines checkout for 3 weeks and have NO overdue fines. Digital items will automatically be returned at the end of the loan period.  Students - please log into your Destiny account to see what you have checked out and the due date(s). Students can renew most items themselves in Destiny PRIOR TO the due date; once overdue, students can bring the item(s) to the library in-person to ask for a renewal.

Loan limitations: In general, the JHMS Library does not set a limit on the number of books students can borrow at a time. Students should consider how many books they can read and be responsible for at a time. From time to time, the library staff members may place limits if students have fines for missing or damaged items, or regularly have overdue items.

Communication: The JHMS Library will attempt to send automated emails to TCSD Gmail accounts to communicate with students about books coming due soon, books that are on hold, and books that are overdue. Emails may also be sent to parents/guardians send for items that are 3 or more weeks overdue. Look for emails from jhmslibrary

Lost or damaged materials: In accordance with TCSD Board Policy IJ " Instructional Resources and Materials", borrowers will be charged a fee (typically the original cost of the item to TCSD / JHMS) for lost or damaged library materials. Please do not purchase replacement items directly - we will do so using our library cataloging specifications.  Payment is accepted as cash or checks made out to Jackson Hole Middle School (JHMS). Please be extra careful with food and liquids in backpacks - these are the leading causes of damaged books in the JHMS Library.

Behavior expectations: Students are expected to follow JHMS behavior guidelines: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be a Colt!

* Please note that books with a YA (Young Adult) sticker on their spines may have teen/mature content.
