Welcome to the Jasper Middle School Media Center!
It's going to be a great year at JMS Media Center. We have so many new things planned for the 5th and 6th grade students. We have genrified the library's fiction collection so students can easily find the types of books they like to read. The genres we have are adventure, animal stories, historical fiction, realistic fiction, humorous stories, scary stories, fantasy, graphic novels, sports stories, mysteries, and science fiction. Just added for this school year is romance. We also have a large collection of non-fiction information books.
If you need help finding books that you like to read in your lexile range, please ask Ms. Posey to show you how to do that in Destiny.
Jasper Middle School will participate in the Tome Society this year. This is an exciting organization that offers a variety of competitions for students to engage with books. An online reading bowl is just one of the competitions offered but there are several others. Click on the link above to find out more. Also see the page Tome Society.

Kelly Posey - media specialist
I'm very excited about all the things we have planned for the JMS media center this year. I've been a media specialist with Pickens County Schools for 15 years. Before that, I worked in public libraries in the metro Atlanta area for 13 years. I earned my teaching certificate at the University of West Georgia. I also have a masters degree in Information and Library Studies from the University of Michigan. In addition to those degrees, I have a masters degree from the University of Michigan in music and a bachelor's degree in music from Converse College in South Carolina. I grew up in Cherokee County where I graduated from Cherokee high school. I love to read just about any kind of book and I love to share books with young people.
