GGHS has been awarded recent academic honors as a 2016 California Honor Roll school. Schools earn this recognition for high student achievement and student success, reduction in achievement gaps, and high college readiness in students. This is issued by Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business Education Excellence (CBEE), a national coalition of business and education leaders.

Housed in a 7200 sq.ft.* facility in the southwest part of campus next to Don Wash Auditorium and Heritage Hall, the Garden Grove High School Library (ArgoLib) serves to support the curriculum and operations of the school.
 (*smaller than Katy Perry's or Justin Bieber's houses)
Hours: 7:00-3:00, M-F
 (Open 3-4pm, M-Th for tutoring)
Come on in
   Two main sections of library:  
Counter computers & printer /
Library books /
Study area for QuietPeople™ 
Table Land
(for meetings, testing,
presentations, studying, chilling) /
Plus: computer "lab" & printer
 (Details in the "Facility / Equipment" section)  
Reason for the split setup: GGHS needs a place for large gatherings--for 80 AP testers or for 70 seniors to see a presentation or for 50 students to serve detention (see other examples).  And this large room is the sensible place for those things.  Hence, Table Land!
The library area has shifted to the other end of the building.  We have gathered only the best and most up-to-date books into this smaller area.  It is arranged to be easily browseable, using sections as you'd see in a bookstore (officially known as BISAC Subject Headings).  (New pics of new shelving/organization coming soon) For more detail, see "Catalog" and "Sections."  
Checking out a book is easy: Take the 1-3 books you've found to Mr. Hume and he'll zap barcode(s) on his phone--also your ID card barcode, assuming you have it.  Checkout period: 3 weeks, plus 1 renewal.  
Modernization: It was our turn this past summer!  Now we have air conditioning throughout the building!  Plus new ceiling, lights and windows and carpeting--whoop, whoop!  And new network hardware!  More details to follow...
