The Mountain View Library is designed to teach grade-level-appropriate skills that enable students to grow to be independent library users when seeking materials for either classroom work or pleasure reading. Every class receives guided lessons that integrate with current classroom curriculum, current events, or specific literary themes. Additionally, book talks, readings and displays are designed around themes or genres to expand students’ awareness of choices, to encourage sampling of a wide variety of reading material, and to support classroom required reading assignments.There are many enrichment programs the students have the opportunity to participate in such as the Battle of the Books(4-6), and Author Go-Round (5th).

All students also have the opportunity to participate in the California Young Reader Medal Award Program.
