Mrs. Shah

I’m the librarian, Mrs. Shah and I would like to welcome you to EARTHS Magnet School Library! 

Our library collection has over 13,000 titles available to students for check-out and another 5,000 core lit and classroom sets titles.  Core lit books are available for teachers to use in their classrooms with the students. Students have the opportunity to visit the library with their class each week. During library time I will share great works of literature with students and then students are allowed to select books to borrow.  I look forward to sharing my love of reading and exploring new adventures through stories.  

California Young Reader Medal

  • California Young Reader Medal nominees are read in the library.  After all five books are read, the students get to vote for their favorite book.  The votes are sent to the CYRM office, tallied, and the winner is announced shortly afterwards.
