University School of Jackson

Campbell Library: Upper and Middle School

The Mary Frances Campbell Library is a vital and exciting part of the school community.  The recently renovated library now offers inspiring spaces for our students by providing small group areas, a quiet study room, individual work areas, and also two write-on walls for collaborative study.  Our new Bruin Café offers snacks and drinks for students before school and during break time.

The philosophy behind the development of the library collection supports the students and faculty in all aspects of their academic work. The library collection and the services offered by the library staff support the work done in the classroom, enhance the concepts being taught, and expand the academic possibilities through the use of printed materials and online resources. Our goal is to also serve as USJ's public library; as we serve an on-campus community of students and faculty. We support recreational use of the library for activities such as reading and access to the Internet. The Campbell Library is a vital and exciting part of the school community.
