Mrs. Lisa Delgado, Media Specialist
Please return lost library books to:
South Jackson Media Center

Athens, GA 30607
Thanks for a wonderful book fair. Many students, parents, and teachers were able to buy several fantastic books to keep them reading through the cold weather! Books purchased online should arrive soon.
We will have a Buy One Get One Free book fair in May. Remember, books make great holiday gifts!
Play this game to help you learn the order of books in the library. This will help you find the books you want to check out.
Please read with your children and let them read to you. When you are not reading, please put library books in a safe place. I encourage students to put their books in the same place each time, so they will know where it is when they want to return it. We look forward to seeing all of our South Jackson friends in the library this year!
South Jackson participates in several reading promotion opportunities throughout the year.
All South Jackson students have the opportunity to participate in the Six Flags Read-to-Succeed reading promotion program. Students who read for 6 hours above and beyond reading required for school will earn a free ticket to Six Flags Over Georgia! Tickets will go home with students in May.
We have 2 Scholastic book fairs each year. In the fall, we host a fund raising book fair. Local profits are used to support the South Jackson Media Program. In the spring, we host a Buy One Get One Free book fair. The cost of the books is reduced to help students build their home libraries in time for the summer break.
Author and musician Eric Litwin came to South Jackson on December 6th, 2012! He is best known as the author of the Pete the Cat books.
