Johnson City Schools libraries develop students who are critical thinkers and thoughtful users of information through teaching, collaboration and a rich collection of resources.

Our school libraries are diverse, student-centered learning hubs that promote teacher and student success through collaboration, inquiry and literacy across all disciplines.  Our collections provide students with a wide variety of age-appropriate materials from which to select in their pursuit of personal interests and learning.  

We ensure equitable services and access to high quality, educational, relevant resources for students. Our JCS school library media specialists are leaders, instructional partners, information specialists, teachers and program administrators. JCS libraries are the heart of each school community.

Digital Citizenship

To empower students to be effective users of technology and information, the implementation of a Digital Citizenship curriculum must be a priority. 

Digital Citizenship teaches students not only how to stay safe online, but how to express their opinions, communicate with others, recognize the truth versus what is fake news or clickbait and maintain a healthy media balance. It also gives students the skills needed to make positive choices that will allow them to be successful in their futures.

JCS Librarians are taking the lead on implementing the Digital Citizenship curriculum from Neptune Navigate teaching lessons regularly throughout the school year.
