About the Library

Use Your Library

Studies have proven that academic scores at schools go up where a strong library media program is present. The staff at Sierra Vista Jr. High recognizes this through its efforts to teach information literacy skills and to provide a variety of literacy programs. Students are taught to effectively access, evaluate and use information. It is hoped that they will become lifelong learners!

Each day there is a 15 minute period of silent sustained reading called R.E.L.A.X. (Read, Enjoy, Learn And Explore). Students are encouraged to come to the library to check out books for this reading period. We have over 16,000 items to choose from! See the teacher librarian for suggested titles.
