The Washington Library was first opened for scholar use during the 2016-2017 academic school year, and currently serves the information needs of the 7th through 12th Grade scholars at John Adams Academy Roseville. The majority of the print collection is comprised of a purchase made from a classic liberal arts college, and the quality and quantity of the resources reflect such. Additional materials have been received through generous donations by parents, scholars, and community members, and further donations of appropriate materials in good repair are always welcome. The resources have been, and continue to be, carefully vetted to ensure that the materials represent some of the greatest original works of fiction, biography, history, and philosophy ever written. As such, the Washington Library offers scholars and teachers access to an extensive array of university quality print resources, and allows them to perform thorough research in both primary and secondary sources.
In addition to print resources, scholars and staff have access to an exhaustive collection of online resources through EBSCOHost, a research database and discovery service which provides access to thousands of scholarly journals, full-text articles, magazines, e-books, newspapers, reference materials, and additional primary documents. Scholars may access EBSCOHost from any school computer, laptop, or Chromebook, and may also access these resources from home using a special John Adams Academy Login that will be provided to them upon request.
