Library Media Center Hours (2018-2019)

During the 2018-2019 school year, the JMS Library Media Center (LMC)  will open at 9 AM every morning. When the first bell rings, students should report directly to class to get a pass before visiting.

Students may come to the Media Center during the day with a signed pass from his or her teacher and during lunches when open library days are scheduled (most days).

All students will have a library visit during the first two weeks of school in order to get a book to read for the AR requirement. Students will also receive information about library rules and about taking AR quizzes. Students will also be scheduled throughout the year for visits during their academic classes. Language Arts classes will have regular visits at least every three-four weeks. Mrs. Gastelum will have her own ELA (English Language Arts) and other classes during most periods, but students are still welcome to visit as long as they don’t become a distraction to Mrs. G’ s classes.

There are some days when the LMC will be closed to walk-ins due to scheduled class visits. Please check the Calendar for those days and times.

The Library Media Center closes 10 minutes before the end of the school day.  

If you have questions, please email Mrs. Gastelum at dgastelum@my.putnamschools.org or contact her on Facebook at Jenkins MediaCenter.
