The mission of Taft Junior High School Library/Media Center is to provide an accessible, enjoyable, welcoming place for students, teachers, and staff to find books, resources, and materials that will promote a love of reading and lifelong learning.

It is my philosophy that our TJH Library/Media Center be an integral part of our students' education.  It will provide teachers and staff with current resources and equipment to be used in giving our students the best education possible.  A collaborative effort between the teachers and the librarian will ensure that all students learn the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the future.  Students will use the TJH Library/Media Center as a place to enjoy quality literature and take an active part in learning information literacy skills.

TJH Library/Media Center Goals:

  •   Help students acquire an interest in and enjoyment of reading.
  •   Acquire and maintain a balanced collection of resources that meet the needs of all users.
  •   Support the Taft Junior High School curriculum and the classroom programs by providing needed materials and appropriate guidance and instruction to students.
  •   Collaborate and plan with teachers to provide activities that integrate information literacy and research skills.
  •    Promote parental involvement by providing opportunities for parents to contribute in their child’s academic success.
