Library Media Center
Welcome to the Library
Media Center is the heart of Shepherd Glen School. It is used daily by students, teachers and staff for story time, research, book selection, computer use and sometimes for assemblies and concerts. There are fiction and non-fiction books, reference materials, and videos for classroom use. Our Teacher Center has professional books, magazines and information on current trends and strategies in teaching.
The Media Center is also home to our Maker Space and Family Resource Center!
While new to the Shepherd Glen Media Center, Mrs. Marini is not new to teaching in Hamden. You may recognize her name from her many years teaching English at Hamden High School.

The Shepherd Glen Library Media Center is a place where curiosity and problem solving is encouraged. Centrally located in the school, it is the focal point for pleasure reading, information seeking, knowledge building, and thinking. Research shows school libraries support student learning and higher academic achievement when staffed by qualified library teachers. At Shepherd Glen, the library media center is an important part of a student’s education.
