Library Media Center
Welcome to the SHS Library Media Center Website. We strive to make the library a comfortable and useful place for all of our students.
Did you know that the #1 way to improve reading and writing skills is to spend time reading? It's true! And enjoying what you read makes it even more effective. Also, improving reading skills helps improve test scores, including the California High School Exit Exam and the CSTs. SO...GET READING!
We have many books on all different topics that will make reading fun: mystery, teen issues, school issues, graphic novels, Manga, horror, romance, sports, biographies, nature, and many more.
Every year students are assigned a research paper or project. This is the place to start. The library has many current resources an all kinds of research topics. But it's not just about books, we also have computers for Internet research. We currently offer 2 GALE subscription databases, Student Resources in Context, and Opposing Viewpoints in Context. These can be accessed from the side menu under Library, Research Database Access.
We are open before and after school, during both lunches and during class time. Come in and CHECK US OUT!
