At your service in the library is Mrs. Hornbeck, the Library Media Specialist, at Mendenhall.

The Accelerated Reader Program has over 100,000 tests for books and is updated every few weeks to include the latest novels.  If you would like to access the AR list from a location other than school, the website is:



Your student's Accelerated Reader progress can be viewed on the following site:

The Library hours for the 2017 - 2018 school year are:


7:50-3:30   Mondays, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - Closed most Monday mornings due to Math Counts.

7:50-2:30   Wednesday (except on staff collaboration days, when the library will close at 2:15)

Students are welcome to use the library during their lunch break by signing in before or after school and during the break, before school and after school unless otherwise posted.  Because meetings are sometimes held after school in the library, a notice will be posted on the library entrance door every day regarding its availability.  



If you have any inquiries about the library, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Textbook Distribution Information

We will begin handing out textbooks the first week of school.  The schedule will be posted here and it will be done slowly over the course of the week so your student won't be bringing all of their textbooks home in one day.


Please have your student bring their old ID card, any year will work, any school from LVJUSD will work.  This makes the processes quicker if we can scan ID cards.


To check to see what books you still have out, please use this link:
