Welcome to the GSCES Media Center!
We can't wait to see all of our Bullfrogs back in the Media Center in the coming weeks. Students will begin checking out library right during the first week of school when they visit us for their first lesson.
Visiting the Media Center
Students in Grade K - 2nd grade will visit the GSCES Media Center every week to exchange library books with a media lesson every other week. Students in Grades 3 through 5 will visit the GSCES Media Center every two weeks for lessons and book exchange. Lessons include Digital Citizenship, research skills, evaluating sources of information (information literacy), library skills and, of course, literature appreciation.
Every morning, the Media Center is open from 8:40 - 9:05 am for students in Grades 2-5. Students may obtain a pass from their homeroom teacher to visit.
Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 3:45 pm but our Online Resources are available 24/7!

We strongly encourage every family to sign up for a public library card - it is free and there are endless choices for free choice & independent reading. We can even connect our school's eBook collection with the Montgomery County Public Library's children's collection.
