JES Library has two book fairs a year; one in the spring and one in the fall. We close early on those book fair Fridays at 12 pm. If you would like to volunteer please contact Mrs. Nachtwey. We could always use your help and it is always appreciated! We have two types of volunteers. Library volunteers which help with maintaining the library like shelving and tasks.
