View Ridge Library

Our library’s mission is to inspire students to be readers and lifelong users of quality information.  This goal is achieved through frequent collaboration with teachers, staff, and parents/guardians to support curriculum and individual student needs.  We are very proud of our library, boasting over 15,000 books/publications!!  Students are scheduled to visit the library at least once per week and we work with students to have the library available to work on class research projects.  Another thing that makes our library so special is Author Visits.  We invite great authors to come and inspire our young readers in all grades.  The UW Book Sale and the Pre-Loved Book Sale are a couple of the events our families look forward to each year.  Also, our 4th and 5th grade students compete in the Global Reading Challenge.



View Ridge families are able to access the View Ridge library catalog from home.  Follow the link below to see if we have a specific book available.

    Ways to Raise a Reader

    • Help children form a reading habit: read to your child every day.
    • Let children see you reading: newspapers, magazines, books, articles on the Internet.
    • It's okay to focus on what's happening in the pictures - if your child brings home long nonfiction books, try reading the captions.
    • Ask your child questions about the story - favorite parts, predictions, etc.
    • Watching a family movie? Use captions!
