J.W. Sexton High School Media Center


The Library is open on Mondays & Fridays during the school day until 2:25 pm. Please get a pass from your teacher if you want to come to the library during class time. You may come to the library during Lunch. We are open until 3:55 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, when we have After-School Homework Help and APEX credit recovery as well as open Library.

Loan periods of books are two weeks. You may renew your books if there is no hold on them. If a book you would like to read is not available, you may place it on hold. You can access our Library’s catalog through the “District Apps” in your StudentVue account. The link is on the left navigation panel. If there are books you think we should have in the Library, please feel free to make suggestions.

If you log into your Library account from StudentVue (your username is just your student number, password is the same as your Google classroom password), you can review books by giving them stars and write brief reviews.

There are many databases available to you through CADL.org, Remc13.org and MEL.org. You can read ebooks, listen to audiobooks, read graphic novels, watch TV, watch movies, access music, improve your skills and prepare for tests, and, of course, find a multitude of databases for reports, research papers, etc. Please see our Database Information Sheet below for links, etc.
