Our facility has over 14,000 books. Our fiction books are organized by genre. Our nonfiction books are organized by the Dewey Decimal System accompanied by many visual clues. We also have an "E" for everybody section full of picture books and some board books, along with an "ECH" for Early Chapter books to help younger readers transition into reading longer stories.
Students can use online databases purchased by the county both at school and off campus through ClassLink. Electronic versions of popular and academic magazines and journals, as well as extensive online encyclopedias and eBooks are available.
In the CASTLE, students are encouraged to explore topics related to coursework and discover new interests in spacious and welcoming surroundings. Our state-of-the-art technology and a wide range of resources make research efficient and allow students to gain new and different perspectives concering various subjects.
A fixed Specials schedule affords students the opportunity to learn and practice scaffolded information literacy, media literacy, visual literacy, and technology literacy skills with Mrs. Daniels, Instructional Media Specialist. Students learn additional technology literacy skills with Mrs. Merck, Instructional Technology Specialist.
Students are encouraged to make full use of the CASTLE Library to further their study, broaden and deepen their minds, and express creativity with a hope that they will use knowledge on behalf of the one world we share.

Talking with your kids on a regular basis about what they are reading can positively affect their performance at school and create important family bonds. We invite you and your child to look at our school media center catalog together to discuss options or create a list of books to check out.
Forsyth County Schools’ media centers provide resources that reflect all students within each school community. If you come across a book that does not match your family’s values and/or beliefs, and you would prefer that your child does not check that book out, please discuss it with your child.
We are always happy to help you and your child to find just the right book. This is a partnership, and we are excited to work with you!
