Hello Short Ave community!

Summer is here, but that doesn't mean you have to stop reading. While our school library is closed during the summer, all of Los Angeles's amazing public libraries are open! Public libraries also have a lot to offer online (e-books, audiobooks and movies!). Don't miss out on all they have available for you for FREE!

Need some reading recommendations? Check out our awesome summer booklists for 2022. 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.

Have you heard?!

LAUSD has announced a major refresh project of all of its elementary school libraries. Elementary schools in the district were allocated an amount of money based on their student body size and Title I status. Short Avenue will receive just over $42,000 (!) dollars to refresh our outdated and aging book collection, and purchase a new computer for the front desk, two scanners and a printer. Read more about this exciting news here.

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!


All classes had visited the library with their class weekly and checked out book(s) of their choice. 1st-5th graders had the opportunity to come once or twice (depending on grade) to the library for quiet recess. They read books (of course!) but also drew, colored, created comics, and read magazines.
