Emergency-Red-School Closure
School Closure

With student and staff safety as our top concern, GISD has decided to close all schools and offices on Friday, February 3, 2023, due to continued unsafe road conditions. See the Weather Procedures page for more details.

Our school libraries provide access to:

  • a certified librarian who serves as the Campus literacy leader
  • fiction and nonfiction books
  • bilingual books
  • research digital resources
  • ebooks

Our middle and high school libraries also offer print and digital access to college, career and test prep materials.

Students have 24/7 access to ebooks and digital resource materials. Contact your school librarian for more information.

Libraries enhance classroom learning

Teachers and librarians work together to provide teaching and learning across all content areas including:

  • the ways to use digital tools to find and evaluate information
  • cybersafety and the importance of digital citizenship
  • how to conduct research, format research papers and properly cite sources

Teachers, librarians and students work together to acquire, evaluate and use information effectively. Librarians stay up-to-date with the current curriculum to help students get the information they need when they need it. 

Before and after school activities

School libraries have multiple computers and are often used as a meeting space for students or teachers to work collaboratively.

Many librarians sponsor before and after school activities, clubs and programs such as book fairs, makerspaces and book clubs. Visit your school's library page to find out what's going on.

Library catalogs

Find books, ebooks, and other resources by visiting your school's library catalog. If you need help with any of these resources, please contact your school librarian.

Online Instructional Resources

Online Instructional Resources are available to all students, teachers, parents, and administrators from any district or non-district computer.
