The Media Library is the documentation and information centre: it is open to Middle and High school students, and to all the Institution’s staff (teachers and non-teachers).
The Documentalist teachers, Mrs Legendre and Mrs Parain, share the task of welcoming, advising and training students in documentary research and media education, managing documentary resources and working in collaboration with the teachers.
The Media Library is a place of reading: the pupils come to read novels, comic books, manga and various titles from the press. It is possible to borrow documents (up to two books for a period of 15 days): to do so, all you have to do is choose a book and register its loan with the Documentalists. Returns are done in the same way.
The Media Library is a place of learning: the Documentalist provide training to students alone or in partnership with other teachers. These training courses focus on media and information education and documentary research. Classes with their teacher are also welcomed to use the available resources and computer tools.
The Media Library is a place of work: pupils come to work independently, alone or in groups, and always in a quiet environment.
The Media Library is a place of culture: for example, the Documentalists offer reading days and are in contact with the various players in the cultural life of St Jo. It is also possible to obtain information on educational and vocational guidance from Onisep documents and brochures from various schools.
The Media Library is organised into several sections: a press section, a novels & comics section classified by level (Grades 6&7, 8&9 and High school students), a documentary section as per the Dewey classification (by theme), a computer area (reserved for schoolwork) and a desks for study area.
The Media Library is open from Monday to Saturday.
At lunchtime, two days are reserved for Middle school students from 12:00 to 1:00 pm and two days for High school students from 12:30 to 12:30 pm. These days may change from one year to the next.
