Hello Short Ave community!

School is back and so is our school library! The library is open DAILY from 8:15am-2:45pm. 

Classes will visit on a weekly basis starting the week of Sept 5th. 

Snack Recess and Lunch Recess at the library has already begun and we have been full almost everyday. If you would like to volunteer and help out during recess please let me know, I hate having to turn away kids because we are too full. 

While our little library is great, it is still quite small. Kids can only check out 1 or 2 books at a time, and taking them home is only available for the upper grades.  That's why I highly recommend visiting your local public library branch on a regular basis, where you can check out 30+ books each visit for 2-3 weeks at a time (depending on the library system). 

Los Angeles's public libraries are amazing! If you don't like visiting them in person, they also have a lot to offer online (e-books, audiobooks and movies!). Don't miss out on all they have available to you and your kids for FREE! Write me if you have any questions, I love talking about libraries.

Need some reading recommendations? Check out our awesome booklists for 2023. They cover a wide variety of reading levels and interests. Print them out and take them with you to the public library or your favorite bookstore. 

Keep Reading and Stay Curious!

Short Avenue LIBRARY by the Numbers 2022-2023 

and Library Wrap up


Wow, what a year its been for our little library. Our biggest event has definitely been finally receiving the 2000+ books I had chosen and ordered in early 2022 from our LAUSD library refresh grant. LAUSD hasn't invested this much in elementary school libraries in over 30 years, so we're feeling beyond grateful. Seeing those books on our shelves, becoming part of my dream library, and watching your kids dive into them has been an absolute joy. 

I look forward to keeping our library the vibrant and dynamic celebration of books, stories, curiosity, creativity, and knowledge it is. If you want to contribute and make our library even better, take a peek at our library wishlist

Meanwhile, keep reading and stay curious!

About me

Hi! Welcome to our lovely school library. My name is Na'ama Levy (pronounced nah-ah-MAH LEH-vee). I have been in charge of the library since April 2019. I love reading (obviously!), being with my family, cooking, visiting libraries all over the world, and being in nature. 

I think I have the best job in the whole world, and can't wait to share my love of books with you!
