Mineral Wells Junior High School Library
MWJH Librarian, Beth Henderson, shows off her newest addition to her Peanuts Collection. The library decorations show her passion for Charlie Brown and his friends. She said that the first year “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” aired on TV, that she was in third grade. After enjoying the 30-minute program, she and her best friend went out Trick or Treating, and she said that she literally Got a rock in her candy bag. Ever since that day, she has felt a connection to Charlie Brown.
The library is the hub of Mineral Wells Junior High. From UIL sign ups, converting the library to a Spanish Mission, and displaying of work from all departments, the library is an active place to be.
Students enjoy playing Minecraft and other design programs during lunch.
Holding several Scholastic Book Fairs each year, the second one is always Buy One Get One Free.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) projects that the library aides created. After viewing the Caine’s Arcade video, students designed their ideas in their journals, then put their plans into action and created fun games. The games were a huge hit for students of all ages!
New classroom sets of books are exciting for the teachers and students!
The 8th grade ELA department coordinate with Mrs. Henderson to offer several STAAR clinics throughout the year.
ELA classes visit the library every other week for an exciting Library lesson, then they spend time relaxing and reading.
There’s rarely a dull or totally quiet moment in the MWJH Library. Stop by and see it some time!
