SWJH Media Center

Week of September 21-25

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

The school year has been very busy so far in the Shakopee West Junior High Media Center! With the new devices, media center orientations, book check-out, and special presentations, the media center has been a hoppin' place! Please come and see us to experience the wide variety of furniture and collaborative atmosphere we have. We would love to assist you with password/device issues, research and printing needs, as well as your book selection process. We are here to help you!

eBooks are Ready to be Checked Out!

Did you know that we had an eBook collection? You simply need to go to MackinVia.com; go to West Junior High, Shakopee; type in your student ID and your regular school password. Once you are there, search away for a book that interests you by author or genre. Our collection is rather small, but we are slowly adding to it every year. We should have over 400 titles by the end of first semester.
