Garden City High School Library

October & November 2015 Update

Research and Reflection

The time from Halloween through the New Year always is always hectic. Here in the GCHS Library we were extremely busy teaching classes and assisting students with research. During the months of October and November we taught nearly 100 classes in the library, and in classrooms, using the Chromebooks. In October over 9,000 students visited the library. November was a busy month as well with over 7,000 student sign-ins. Who knows what December will bring. We hope to see you @ the library.
With gratitude,
Margaux & Trish

Overdrive Is Here!

Did you know that you can now get free eBooks and audiobooks from the library? It’s easy! Just visit, and borrow digital books using your six digit student ID number or faculty e-mail address. You can enjoy on all major devices, such as iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle®. Visit the GCHS Library website for more information, frequently asked questions and 24/7 access to the Overdrive site.

The Chromecarts Are Here!

We are happy to report that the library has two Chromecarts available for teachers to "checkout" for use in their classrooms, or in the library. Please see your librarians for more information!

What Is The Quiet Study Area?

With the extremely large crowds coming in during the lunch periods we have designated the front area of the library a "quiet study area" for students that need to work silently and independently or in small study groups during lunch periods. Please help us to spread the word about the "quiet study area" and remind all students about proper behavior when in the library.
