Open Up a World of Possibilities with Your Child's Library Card!
We're excited to announce that Giant City School is now part of the Illinois Heartland Library System's SHARE! That means our students will have access to millions of books, audiobooks, television series, CDs, DVDs, and video games from libraries all across Illinois.
K-8 Students will get a library card automatically, and they can learn how to use the system and select materials for themselves. Then, every weekday, their selections will be delivered to GCS! There are no restrictions on what people can request through SHARE, and we want our students to be able to self-select their materials. However, if the library staff has a question about any selections, they'll contact parents before allowing the items to be checked out.
Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade can borrow up to 3 items at a time, but only one of them can be something other than a book (like a DVD, video game, CD, etc.).
Please make sure to return all items borrowed to the GCS library within three weeks, and in good condition. If not, you will be responsible for covering any replacement costs.
