LIBRARY

pictures of updated library

Loma Vista's library was completely updated in 2018. Books are available for students at all reading levels in a wide range of interests. New furniture makes the space comfortable and inviting.

Students visit the library with their class regularly. There is something for everyone - please ask your teacher or the librarian if you need help finding books just right for you!

Loma Vista parents can sign books out of our library. Please check with the librarian for details.


Volunteer In the Library

Parents are welcome and invited to volunteer in the library, either during the time their student's class is scheduled to visit, or any time that is convenient. It is fun to be in the library to see students excited over reading material!
