Vinton-Shellsburg Libraries

Welcome to the Vinton-Shellsburg Community School District Libraries site!

Be sure to email Ms. Camarata at if you have any questions. And as Mr. Trebon, her elementary school principal, always said, "Read, read, and read some more!"

Children's Choice Challenge CHAMPS!!

Ms. Camarata challenged the 3rd-5th graders in the district to read books from the Iowa Children's Choice Award nominees list, put out by the Iowa Association of School Librarians. If they read the number that corresponds to their grade level (3rd graders need to read 3, 4th graders 4, and 5th graders 5), and has short conversations with Ms. Camarata about them, she considers them Children's Choice Challenge CHAMPS! They get a special button or magnet declaring that they are champs and get their names featured here on our very own library website.

Here's the list of CHAMPS for the 2022-2023 school year!
