Mountain View Library

A PLACE TO RELAX AND LEARN

The Mountain View Library resembles the student union on a college campus, where students gather to learn and relax together. The library provides access to a valuable collection of print and on-line resources for choice reading and research. The library’s ever-growing fiction collection extends the vast selection of titles available in classroom libraries. In the research room, students will find a broad collection of reference and non-fiction books to help them complete assigned projects and answer questions of personal interest. Library hours are 7:00 am to 3:00 pm. Find a book at the Mountain View Library: Library Catalog Librarian: Becca Ferrick                   becca ferrick
