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. Kaeley Christensen, our Library Media Specialist manages circulation and maintains the collection, as well as designs enticing curriculum to promote a love of reading that lasts a lifetime.

Sixth graders have the opportunity to receive community service hours in the library during their recess times. Tasks include dusting, cleaning, re-shelving, circulation support as well as creative design projects with Mrs. Christensen.

 

With the generous support of parents and our MAGIC funds, Mountain View Library is able to maintain a rich and up-to-date collection of over 15,000 volumes, including non-fiction, biographies, reference materials, new fiction, classics, periodicals, picture books, and early readers. Mrs. Christensen continually works with teachers to ensure that we have the necessary resources to support research projects and literature-based curriculum. She also loves receiving special requests for new titles from the students.

In addition to their weekly class times, students are welcome to visit the library at recess time to check-out books, browse, or as a quiet place to read or study. Mrs. Christensen strives to create an inviting, stimulating, and accessible environment that encourages each child to develop the confidence and motivation to read and appreciate quality literature.
