The Diboll Junior High School Library Media Center is an integral part of the total curriculum and as such contributes to all of its goals and objectives. The library media center program links users with materials, services, resources and equipment in the most effective and efficient way possible and extends educational experiences. A well-organized collection of print and non-print materials and equipment is maintained for users to find, to evaluate and to use.
Our Goal: to help our students become independent, inquisitive learners who are full of questions and know how to find the answers; to provide a welcoming place for students to find books and to read for pleasure, and to support the staff with curricular materials.
Students may use circulation materials from the library for pleasure reading, classroom use, and research. Library books are checked out for a period of three weeks and may be renewed as needed. Each student will be responsible for the condition and timely return of all library materials used and checked out.
Sets of TEXTBOOKS may be checked out and kept at home during the school year. Parents may personally come to the school to check out these textbooks or they may send a letter or e-mail stating they wish for their child to have a set of textbooks checked out to them. All textbooks will be due May 17, 2019. If a textbook is not returned by this date, a charge for the textbook will be assessed.
may also check out a graphing calculator for the school year. A letter must be filled out by a parent or guardian and returned to the librarian to check out a calculator. Students may pick up a calculator letter from their math teacher or the librarian. Calculators are due May 17, 2019, or a $120.00 fine will be accessed.
