WELCOME TO THE HJHS LIBRARY

In addition to BOOKS, our library is full of TECHNOLOGY and CREATIVITY. Our library is busy and loud; it is a place where students gather to hang out with friends, study in a soft chair, or play a quick game of chess. It is a place where students feel a deep sense of BELONGING and COMMUNITY.

ACTIVITIES IN THE LIBRARY:

  • CODE CLUB - Meets every Thursday @ 3:00 - Coached by Mrs. Lesher and Ms. Foley.
  • CHESS CLUB - Meets every other Tuesday @ 3:00 - Coached by Mr. Hillman.

LIBRARY POLICIES:

Students will be charged for lost or damaged books. They must either replace the book or pay the cost to purchase the lost or damaged book.
