John Muir Library Media Center

Welcome


John Muir Media Center is your place for research, group study, homework, book reading/checkouts, taking tests, and working on computer related projects. Mrs. Laxson is available to assist in the access and use of the 32 Apple laptops, 40 Chromebooks and a media center printer. Three additional laptops are always available for browsing the library’s collection and checking your grades.

Book Check Out

Students are able to check out up to three books at a time.  The books are due every two weeks with the option to renew as often as they desire, with the exception of requested books.  The library has over 16,700 books available to the students.  John Muir is continuously working to update and add books.
