• My name is Kathy Hart and this is my 14th year as the Library Media Specialist at Joe Michell School.  I have a great program planned this year for our students.  All students will visit the Library once per week.  They will have the chance to learn about books and using the library, hear a story, and be able to check out book(s) every week.

    Students will not be able to check out a book if they have a book that is overdue.  We usually have two Book Fair's  each year, so please watch our website for details.

    I love Parent Volunteers !! There is volunteer time available during your child’s class, or for special projects at a time that works for you. If you would be interested in helping in the Library, please let me, or your classroom teacher know. Plese make sure you have been cleared through the office before volunteering. You can reach me at: khart@lvjusd.k12.ca.us or (925) 606-4738 ext. 6956

    Read with your child and enjoy their book!

  • Please help your child remember the following rules:

    Books should be returned every week, so your child may check out another. 

     If the book is not returned, they will not be allowed to take another book home.

    Books should be kept away from younger children, pets, food and water.

    A book should be stored in your child's backpack when they are not reading it.  That way, it will be sure to be returned to school.

    Books must be treated with special care.  Please send a book back to the Library if it is accidentally damaged while it is checked out.
