Library Media Center



Sarah Dolan-Adamec, Library Media Specialist

The goal of our school library is to provide students with resources and instruction in support of our academic program and the goals of Griswold 2025. Our library program aims to teach students the independent thinking, research, literacy, and technology skills they need for success in the 21st century.

Students are invited to spend WEB block in the library with Ms. D-A (if they have a teacher sign them up online.) This is great for working with a group or doing research for a class project! Other students may get a pass from their WEB teacher to do a quick book exchange.

Students may also request a "Makerspace Pass" from Ms. D-A to spend time in the Makerspace during WEB. They can choose to take things apart or create something new. (Students must have the pass signed by each of their teachers, verifying that they have been respectful in class and have all of their work turned in.)
