Catherine Jones
           Miss Jones (pictured above, right) was the Librarian at Garfield High
           School between 1955 and 1985.  In 1985 because of her outstanding
           and inspirational work, the administration, faculty and staff named the
           library in her honor.

        The library at Garfield High School circa 1969. The library
 was originally located on the first floor of the 400 building
        (room 412 and the Community Room).  It was moved into
      the newly constructed 200 building in 1976.
