The SVHS Library Media Center is an integral part of the educational process at Simi Valley High School.                 

The library provides a setting where students develop skills they will need as adults to locate, analyze, evaluate, interpret, and communicate information and ideas in an information-rich environment. It is our mission to create "lifelong learners" who are "information literate" citizens.  The Library Media Center is also a dynamic place where students actively research independently or while collaborating with other students.Library Homepage PhotoThere is also the option for students to use the facility for a quiet place to study.

Our mission is to have the Simi Valley Virtual Library available to provide resources and guidance for school community on campus, at home, or anywhere there is access to a computer. The Library Media Center has a computer lab section that includes 40 computers complete with the software essential for the high school student. In addition, online subscription databases are available to the students not only in the Library Media Center, but can be accessed from the student's home computer 24 hours a day. The usernames and passwords for these databases are available in the library. If we can be of assistance, please email us using the links below.

in the development of Library Media Center webpages.
