At the Jacksboro Independent School Libraries, we are committed to inspiring a love of reading within students. When reading becomes a habit of mind, students have a greater chance of success in school and in life. They go beyond decoding and comprehension to interpretation, and ultimately develop new understandings about the world around them.
Furthermore, we seek to develop educational technology and research skills while fostering in our students a lifelong passion for learning. Students who successfully use technology to acquire information are more likely to lead successful, meaningful lives in the 21st century.
Finally, we endeavor to support the curricular, informational, recreational, and research needs of students and faculty members by maintaining a collection that is both multi-ethnic and multimedia. All children deserve equitable access to information, and the school library can provide the resources and tools required for learning in a warm, stimulating and safe environment.
