Welcome to the Library! 

What we do...
We are a junior high school library with a full-time, certified librarian on staff. We provide literature, research assistance, and technology integration to approximately 1026 students and teachers on a day-in, day-out basis.


Library hours... 
Patrons are welcomed to the library daily from 8:25 am to 4:30 pm. From 8:30 am to 8:50 am, students may exchange books, peruse magazines, and utilize student computers for research purposes, with a pass from any staff member OR passes are available at the front entry doors each morning.


Library visits... 
Language Arts classes are scheduled to visit the library every other week where they receive a lesson coordinated to curriculum goals and exchange books. Additional visits may be scheduled through the librarian.  All teachers are welcome and encouraged to visit the library by scheduling classes with Mrs. West on a come-as-needed basis. Individual students may visit the library to conduct research or exchange books if they have permission from their teacher.


Circulation Policies... 
Books may be kept for two weeks, and may be renewed as long as there is no demand for the title.  


Library mission...
The mission of the library program at Baytown Junior School is to collaborate with the faculty and teach information, evaluation, and retrieval skills while enhancing and supporting the curriculum through connectivity with technology.  Students are provided with a current library collection, available in both print and digital, that is relevant, diverse, academic, popular,  and recreational, to encourage lifelong readers and success in the world after completing their education.


Library vision... 
The library media program of Baytown Junior envisions a welcoming, integral center, collaborating with the school community to enhance, inspire, and challenge students to inquire, research, create, be life long readers and learners, utilize current and future technologies, access materials, and develop the maximum potential of the patrons, both academically and personally.
