GFS recognizes the faculty and staff who are retiring at the end of this school year. Our first tribute highlights beloved Lower School Librarian Marj Little.
Friends Free Library
Welcome to Friends Free Library!
We are the school library of Germantown Friends School serving both the internal GFS community and our Germantown neighbors. Throughout the year, students, families, community day care centers and school groups visit us for story hours, book selection and library instruction.
Our Library collection consists of approximately 50,000 books, as well as newspapers and magazines, and an active collection of online research databases. Our goal is to encourage a love of reading and to assist individuals with their research needs using both print and internet resources.
Creative voices filled the Friends Free Library when students and community members joined together for a Poetry Lunchtime Chat.
Erica Armstrong Dunbar '90 and Kathy Van Cleve (both current GFS parents) spoke about the recent book they co-authored for middle grade readers.
