Meet Your New
My name is Mrs. McCoy, and I will be serving the students of GBHS and ANHS. I have been with the RJUHSD since 2000, first as a science and math teacher for 17 years and then as a teacher-librarian for the past 5 years. I am excited to meet and work with you this year. My goal is to create a welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and comfortable space where students can relax, study, read, and hangout. Come and see the changes we have already made in the library.
I am here to help you with all of your information needs and support you in any way that I can.
Don’t know what to read next? Come and see me for some great suggestions.
Want to suggest a book for our library or recommend a book to a fellow Grizzly? Fill out one of our slips at the circulation desk, and we will order the book or post your recommendation.
Are you an artist, writer, creator, or poet? Share your creations with us, and we will publish them on our website in our Voices of the Students (VOTS) digital magazine.
Want to get involved with the library? Join our Teen Advisory Board or TAB. We will be running a book club, planning and hosting community service and movie night events, and having themed contest weeks throughout the year.
There are so many amazing opportunities coming your way from the GBHS Library. I can’t wait to be a part of your journey this year. Go Grizzlies!

EBOOKS! AND LOTS OF THEM
We are truly happy to say that the RJUHSD now has a DISTRICT SHELF of ebooks and audiobooks! What does that mean? It means that we are sharing our ebook resources across the district, opening up student choice and options. At GBHS, that means we have gone from the library of about 40 ebooks to a library of over 700 ebooks. And all of them are available to you the minute you log into your account.
Dive into the catalog and take a look at what is waiting for you. A link and tutorials can be found in the Book Den or to your right on this page.
