The library and resource center houses archival yearbooks and video footage of McKinley High's past. Here you will find summaries of the various episodes of Glee

The story so far...
Upon finding out that McKinley High's glee club is in danger of going under, teacher Will Schuester takes on the challenge of reviving it and restoring it to the championship team it once was. Under incredibly difficult odds, New Directions (as it is now called) win sectionals and move on to regionals even despite those who plot against them, such as cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester and even Will's now ex-wife Terri. Principal Figgins makes a deal with Will that glee club would only stay alive if they either won or placed at regionals - meaning they would have to take on the supergroup from Carmel, Vocal Adrenaline. They eventually place last, meaning glee is done for...until help arrives in the form of Sue, who persuades Figgins to give the club another year to prove itself
Meanwhile, former cheerleader Quinn Fabray gave birth to a beautiful baby girl during regionals. Not ready to take on the responsibility of becoming a mother, she decides to give the baby up for adoption to Carmel glee coach (and Rachel's birth mother) Shelby Corcoran, who has decided to quit her position to focus on her new daughter

So a new school year is upon us. With New Directions given another year to prove themselves, what will happen next? Can glee continue to find a way to stay alive?

And that's what you missed on Glee!
