GUSD school libraries are stocked with age-appropriate learning materials that help our students grow academically, intellectually, and personally. Visit the GUSD Library Catalog to see which books are available in each schools’ library.
Library Material Selection
Library materials are evaluated and selected through a process that invites recommendations from administrators, teachers, staff, parents/guardians, and students as appropriate. When selecting books and materials, we take into consideration our students' diverse interests, reading levels, maturity levels, abilities, backgrounds, home languages, and extracurricular interests.
All gifts and donations of school library materials are subject to the same criteria as materials selected for purchase by the District. Materials that contain outdated subject matter or are no longer appropriate will be removed.
Requests for Material Review
We welcome feedback about our library books and materials. If a student or parent/guardian has concerns about a book or material in our school libraries, they should first discuss the material with their school principal.
If, after discussing their concerns with the school principal, the student or parent/guardian is not satisfied with the response, the individual may submit a formal request for review by a GUSD Library Review Committee.
Our elementary students have an opportunity to visit their school library on a regular basis. Visiting the library promotes literacy, curiosity, and a love of learning!
