Let the School Board Know EV Needs its Library!

The EVHS Library is currently open two days a week, Monday and Tuesday.  Our students deserve better! All students deserve a full-time school library program and a full-time teacher librarian at each high school.  Our high schools have been without a full-time librarian since 2007.

Please contact the members of the ESUHSD School Board and let them know that libraries and librarians are important to your students' academic success!

Thank you for supporting the ESUHSD Libraries!
