Welcome to Glen Burnie High School's Library Media Center

Mission:  The mission of the library media center is to be a source of exploration, discovery, and learning. We provide an organized collection of resources and lead instruction in the effective use of these resources. The library media center promotes the concepts of open access to information, intellectual freedom, and life-long learning. Our collection of databases, e-books, and other resources provide our students and staff credible and reliable resources for research and connections to the Common Core curriculum.
