ABOUT OUR LIBRARY

 

Our library provides students with a wide array of fiction and nonfiction books available for students to browse and checkout. Our collection supports the elementary curriculum while providing students with age-appropriate and entertaining materials to encourage a love of reading.


Each class visits our library every other week for thirty minutes to explore and enjoy literature, learn library and information skills and to check out books. TK-2nd graders can bring home one book each visit. 3rd-5th graders can bring home two books.

MORE WAYS YOU CAN HELP OUR LIBRARY:

Volunteers Always Welcome

The library cannot function and serve our students well without the time and talents of our library helpers.  Please consider becoming one of our wonderful volunteers who help with the general "housekeeping" of our library.

 

If you would like to help out at the library, please let your student's teacher know. Volunteers should come 10 minutes prior to your student's library time. Or if you would like to come at a time that is more convenient to you, please email chsue@srvusd.net. No prior experience necessary!

 

We Need EMPTY tissue boxes

Thank you to Mrs. Piptone's class for providing the most empty tissue boxes in our September contest. I still need MORE empty tissue boxes. Any size. Please continue to save your boxes for the library.

BOOK & STUFFED ANIMAL DONATIONS

Have gently used books that your child has outgrown? Bella Vista Library would love to have them! Both hardcover books and popular series paperback books in excellent condition would be greatly appreciated.

 

We are also looking to make our library a more inviting space. If you have stuffed animals in good clean condition, please consider donating them to the library. They would make a great addition to our space.
