• Library - Learn Forever
     
    When everyone is a learner, there is no end to success 
     
    Welcome to the Janitell Learning Center! Our mission is to provide resources that promote collaboration and critical thinking in order to push learners of all ages to excel in academics, interests, and self-reflection. We believe anything is possible with the right approach, and that the right approach can only be found through effective collaboration. Working together, there is nothing we can not accomplish.
  • Contests
    Each semester students can enter a reading challenge! Prizes include cash giveaways and a field trip for finishers. Check back here in September for next year's contest. We also host quarterly contests in art, writing, and other awareness-related areas. During the school year daily prizes also given away for book and quote trivia. See you next fall!
     
    We Want Your Videos!

  • Battle of the Books (BOB)
    August starts our fourth year of BOB at the junior high level in District 3 and we are excited to build on last year's experience. In the past we have both won and lost, but it is not really about winning. The perseverance kids must show, and the relationships they form are simply amazing. We are proud of each participant and hope to see many more faces in 2017 - 2018.
     
    Why not spend 20 minutes a day working on the list? Stories draw us in because they both help us escape from and understand our own lives. Don't miss out on this year's adventures. Listen for announcements for start dates and come by the library for a list (or print/view it below - coming soon. . .).
     
    Check back here for a list of titles! Final battle against Watson and Sproul will be the first week of May.
