Shared learning space
We think of our library as a shared collaborative space for students, staff and the community. Our librarian, Ms. Black, is a ten time GEF grant winner and a former teacher of the year. Special events in the Shugart library include the weekly student success maker ceremony, two book fairs per year, various reading related contests, maker and STEM assignments and other literacy related events. Some years, we invite special guest speakers.
The library staff remains committed to supporting students, teachers and the GISD curriculum. We want everyone who visits us to love books and all things related to our school's library.
Students have scheduled library times weekly. Students who need to visit the library during open checkout must be familiar with the procedures. Students should enter the library quietly. Students must place old books in the designated place, get a shelf marker, and quietly search for books. Once students are ready, they line up and wait to be called. Once checkout is complete, students return their shelf markers, and go back to class. Open checkout is from 8:00 - 8:20 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students may also enter the library at other times as long as they have a pass from a teacher.
