The mission of the Grand Prairie ISD Instructional Media program is to provide lifelong learning skills for 21st century learners. The media program ensures that all staff and students are empowered with information literacy and emerging technologies through collaborative lessons designed with Instructional Media staff. The love of reading and literacy is fostered by providing access to both print and electronic resources.
Welcome to the Dubiski Career High School Library. Students are welcome to check out books, read, work on projects, use the computers or printers, or just relax in our beautiful two-story library. The downstairs library area contains our fiction collection, arranged by genre much like a book store. The areas include Science Fiction Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, Contemporary, and miscellaneous Fiction. Downstairs also holds enough tables and chairs for a full class, several soft seating areas, and four computers with a printer.
The Dubiski Career High School Library upstairs area contains our nonfiction collection. Instead of the traditional Dewey Decimal system, the nonfiction collection is arranged by Career Pathways offered at Dubiski, with each area clearly marked to make it easier to find books of interest. Two classroom areas, two seminar rooms, one lecture hall, one small conference room, two computers with a printer and soft seating areas complete the upstairs area.
The library offers a variety of print, audio, and electronic resources to students. Links to these are located on the right in the Databases for Online Research page. Password lists for the databases are available in the library, and teachers also post the passwords in Edmodo, or email Belinda Stanley for the passwords. Mrs. Stanley is available to help students working in the library. You may search the library collection through the link on the right, but please feel free ask for help in finding anything you need or want.
Requests are taken all year for desired titles. Send book requests to Mrs. Stanley or just drop by the library and visit.
Mrs. Stanley is a graduate of Stephen F Austin State University with a Bachelors of Science in Education, and a graduate of Sam Houston State University with a Masters of Library Science.
Ms. Smith graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, and is currently completing her Masters Degree in Educational Technology.
