Virgil I. Grissom High School Media Center
Welcome to the Virgil I. Grissom High School
Students are welcome to come to the library before, during and after school to read, use computers, print, and make copies. Students are welcome to use the library for small group meetings, study groups, or individually as a quiet place to read and study. Because we often have after school appointments, we would ask that you give us notice if you need the library after school. To maintain our learning environment and make this a comfortable setting for all, we ask that you work quietly so others are not disturbed.
Books may be checked out for 3 weeks, with option to renew. Reference materials may be checked out for use overnight.
