Ask for Help

Can't find the information you need? Let Ms. Moore know. Stop by the library after school on Tuesday or Friday,  and we can work on getting resources for your topic.

Order a Book

The series below will be checked out to Mrs. Gallagher; you can use them in the classroom. We do have many tribe-specific books in the library as well, which you can check out to yourself. REMEMBER -  if Garden City doesn't have what you need,  you can order a book from another library by logging into RICAT.
