General Information

The Valley View Library Media Center is an important part of the educational process at Valley View Middle School.  The library provides a setting where students can do research independently or while working with other students.

Students who have their Valley View ID cards with them may use the library computers to write papers, do research, and take Accelerated Reader tests.  Students may also use the library for a quiet place to read and study.

 Valley View library is continually adding to our collection of books and tests for the Accelerated Reader Program.  Students may search for fiction and non-fiction Accelerated Reader books before school, at lunchtime, and after school.  They may also take Accelerated Reader tests independently during those times.

 Please  call our Library Media Technician if you need assistance.
