Monte Vista's Happening at  the Monte Vista Library?            

You need to pay your library fines, believe me!
How can you find out what library fines you might owe? It's easy! Click on the DESTINY link to the left, and it will walk you through how you can log on to the library program catalog and see what books you have, when they're due, and how to make the library great again! SENIORS: you won't be able to purchase your Chromebooks unless all other fines are cleared! 

(Trivia: the hair on my head is really a Tribble from Star Trek. Look it up.)
Two New Fiction Sections     
The library has two new genre-fiction sections for your reading pleasure. The LGBT+ fiction section features all kinds of fiction with primarily LGBT+ characters and issues. the URBAN FICTION section features realistic fiction that deals with harder-edged topics in a more gritty, realistic way. We will be adding books to these sections over time.  They are located behind the new book display when you first enter the library, where we used to have fiction W-Z. 

Examples of books found in these genres are things like Alex Sanchez' RAINBOW BOYS and David Levithan's BOY MEETS BOY in the LGBT section, and Sistah Souljah and the Bluford High series in the Urban fiction.
