Library Media Center

Welcome! Van Meter's library has something for students of all reading levels and interests. Every class has a weekly library time during which students are introduced to new books and authors, storytelling, and research skills. The library is staffed with one librarian and our wonderful parent volunteers who assist with checking out and re-shelving books.
Parents and students can access the Van Meter Library Catalog from home to search for available books or to see what they already have checked out.
The library is open Monday through Friday during the school day. Our Home and School Club funds our library remaining open at lunch time for reading or doing homework. With a school of approximately 650 students, the library is in almost constant use by classes or by students coming in during recess to read or do homework.
