Library Learning Center
You can visit the library afterschool Monday – Friday from 2:30 – 2:45. Tuesdays you can exchange books during recess or during class if you have permission from your teacher.
The school library program is critical to students' academic and personal success. The necessary skills for college and career ready students include literacy in a wide range of digital, visual, and textual formats. Effective school library media programs enable students to develop critical thinking skills to access, evaluate, synthesize, and apply information; make informed decisions; build a knowledge base; and value reading.
These Utah Standards for Library Media were created by certified teacher librarians to support the integration of information literacy and media skills across the curriculum. They are intended to be taught, not in isolation, but in collaboration with classroom teachers. This collaboration will deepen student learning, foster independent reading, develop reading stamina, build task resiliency, strengthen text-dependent writing, and increase the students’ information literacy. The standards are organized into three clusters:
1. Reading Engagement
2. Research and Information
3. Media Literacy
- You will attend library each week for 45 minutes with your class.
- You will have an assignment aligned to the common core to complete during library.
- Library grades are given each term.

If you are a 4th or 5th grade student, please consider reading books from our Battle of the Books list for the 2021-2022 school year! We have a great selection of books from a variety of genres. You can locate them in the library, on SORA or at the public library! Students read as many of the listed titles by February 2022. When you complete a book, you will need to fill out the below form. Mt View will have a competition and the top four students will represent our school at the district competition in March. All students who read five titles by December 31, 2021 will get a sweatshirt or a T-shirt with the BOB logo. Miss Bundy will give you more details. Let's get reading and see how many books you can read this year!
