Read to Succeed 


Welcome to the Vista Grande Library.


During this time of remote learning, Mrs. Wiseman & Mrs. Cruz will be doing our best to try to share some stories with our students as well as get some favorite books into their hands. Both efforts are a work in progress. Check below for instructions on how to place a hold on books for pickup on the bimonthly drive through days.

Library holds guidelines

Students will be able to log onto their library account, browse for available books, and select 1 or 2 books for delivery at the next drive through. Books will be placed in the student’s curbside bag. These books will be due at the following drive through. Please be courteous and return your books at that time so other students may share them.

How to request a hold

Report Resources

 For additional resources for reports the Web Path Express on our Library Catalog may be helpful. WebPath Express is a part of the library catalog, and directs students to Internet resources that can help fill in some of the information that they may need for a report. In addition to our library, the Danville Library has many books, and you can request that a book from another branch be sent to be picked up by you here in Danville at no charge. You may currently request an eCard on the library web site if you don't have one. As a resident of California you may request a library card from any county library, and Dublin, for example has a very nice Children's section.
