Be a Bookworm!

Library Media Centers

All VCUSD libraries will be a safe and welcoming space, where we celebrate and encourage diversity in our community and support our schools' missions. Our libraries maintain current materials for both curricular and personal use. We promote collaboration with faculty, students and parent, to help students learn those skills needed for both lifelong learning and lifelong reading. We strive to make our libraries a space to promote responsible habits for research and reading. We pledge our libraries as safe spaces for all students.
