Welcome to the West Valley Library!


    The West Valley Media Center is the heart of our school. From the time the doors open, students discover new books and authors, periodicals and technology to meet their academic, recreational reading and research needs.

    Our collection includes over 14,000 books and online resources including over 900 eBooks and helpful databases. The library provides reading and meeting areas where students and faculty can relax and enjoy one another. In the morning students can read, play board games or card games quietly, work on a puzzle, finish homework, continue to code, try out some new GIS mapping activities, draw, or create a comic online. Cell phones should be used for online reading or research purposes ONLY. Video games are limited to sites teachers have encouraged students to use to further their educational pursuits.


    Library Hours:

    Opens: 7:30 a.m. to 8:20 a.m.  Monday through Friday.

    Closes 3:40 p.m.


    Listen for announcements and check your Library Media course on Canvas for more information about clubs.
