Welcome to the GCI Library
We hope you will make good use of the Library resources during your time at GCI. Please don’t hesitate to ask for help from the Teacher-Librarian at any time. The Library opens by 7:50 a.m. and stays open until at least 2:30. Check with Mrs. Osland to see what the closing time is on a specific day.
Finding a Book
Looking for a book? You can check what books we have by looking through our online catalogue. Are you interested in reading a book, but don’t see it in our catalogue? You can request that we purchase it.
You may take out up to 6 books at a time and the loan period is 3 weeks. You are allowed to renew the books up to two times, as long as no one else has requested the book. Magazines are available for 7 day loan periods. It is important to return library materials on time so other library patrons can enjoy the resources we have as well.
Finding Resources Online
We are fortunate to have access to a variety of online databases that are useful for both academic and personal research. These can be accessed through the Virtual Library. Log in Using your PAL to access the databases from home.
The library has both desktops and Chromebooks for your use. You may print from the desktops to either a black and white printer (5 cents per copy) or a colour printer (50 cents per copy). Please be familiar with and follow the rules of acceptable use.
The library also has a scanner (via the photocopier) available for student use. The service is free of charge.
