Welcome to the Colina Library!

  • “Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them." -- Lemony Snickett

    Here at the Colina library, we strive to promote academic curiosity and a love of reading. We offer access to resources relevant to school curriculum and student interests as well as a quiet place to sit and study.

    We do have a few rules… you probably know what they are:

    • No food or drink.
    • Please, no cell phone use in the library.
    • PLEASE push in your chair. It's a simple sign of respect.
    • Please respect other students in the library.

    Popular books in your school library:

    We have over 8,000 fiction and non-fiction titles!

    Your school library also has 30 computers where students can work on school-related assignments before school and during lunch.

      Textbook Prices


        We Offer 2 Choices for How to Replace a Textbook:

        (Textbook Prices are for Replacements, not Purchases. For information on purchases or summer loans, go to the 2nd textbook sets/Summer Loans.)

        Option 1: Pay the replacement cost (shipping and tax is already included) by cash or check made payable to Colina Middle School, OR
        Option 2: Using the correct ISBN number and Year of Publication, purchase a NEW replacement textbook (CA edition) from a textbook vendor and provide the replacement book to the Library. Books in less than NEW condition will not be accepted. Hardcover textbooks must be replaced with hardcovers. Softcover textbooks must be replaced with softcovers. To locate textbook vendors that carry the book you need, Google the book's ISBN number.

        Lost or severely damaged books need to be replaced at the full replacement price. Books with minor damage will be charged according to the type of damage.
