Resources of the Library

To browse our library catalog, as well as NYPL's catalog, go to http://m490.bibliocommons.com/ or http://www.mylibrarynyc.org/ and begin to search.  To borrow materials and have them sent directly to our school, you must log in with your library card number.  Your pin number will be "2012," unless you changed it yourself.  Be sure to enter the email address you actually check when registering your card--that is how they will notify you when your materials ship and/or are overdue!

When requesting materials, be sure to plan ahead--there are many schools participating in the program, all sharing those Teacher Sets!

  • Borrowing school-related materials (books, DVDs, audiobooks, ebooks, etc).  This card should not replace your personal card.
  • Borrowing Teacher Sets (class sets of individual titles or a curated classroom mini-library on pre-selected topics)
  • Enjoy extended loan periods of 60 days
  • Enjoy fine-free borrowing 
  • Access to NYPL's entire collection of research databases
  • Link your NYPL card to Queens Public and Brooklyn Public libraries

Theme of the Library 
The theme for 2018-2019 at the Samuel  Gompers Library that it was a place for all learners. I believe that books plays a critical role in empowering and  supporting learners, but digital technologies offer additional enlightenment and learning. What will be the theme of the Library for 2019 - 2020. The student scholars will determine that this year.  Please check out the video below of the Library is the place for all learners.
