If you haven’t noticed yet, you are sure to see that our library is undergoing some exciting changes. The Mississippi Department of Education has revised the standards for all school libraries, and we are undergoing a process of construction and updating our collection. We have been diligently sorting, labeling, cleaning and re-shelving 15,000 books. These improvements and refinements will make our 
already great library much easier to use and our collection more polished than ever. Our team of volunteers over the summer included Linda Jermyn, Joni Broussard, Clifford Smith, Vicki Stoetzer and alumni Ryan Goulette. Thanks to our great team for their contributions and many hours on this project.
The Scholastic Book Fair will come to the library the week of August 21st – 25th. We receive 20% of your purchases in the form of cash credits for the purchase of new books each year. This is a great way to buy exciting, recently published books for your children and to make a significant and lasting contribution to our school library as well. We have long been recognized as having the finest library and the best student readers on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Anyone interested in volunteering for the Scholastic Book Fair please email Ms. Connie at cfavret@stjamesgulfport.com to reserve your date and times. Thanks in advance to all parents, grandparents, and students, for your purchases and generous support each year.
