Mission Statement

The Vineyard Ranch library grows global leaders that read for pleasure and information from a wide variety of print and electronic resources. Our readers learn to carefully evaluate information and use their creativity, knowledge, and technology to solve problems and follow their passions.

Parent Volunteers

We are always looking for more volunteers to help us with shelving and labeling books. We especially need help decorate for Book Fair February 16th and 17th and during our book fair the week of February 23-26. Our theme is rodeo!


Please contact library@vineyardranchpta.org if you would like to volunteer.

Fairy Tale Makerspaces- I'll Huff and I'll Puff!! Can I Blow Your House Down?

First and second grade students kicked off the Fairy Tale Bowl with an engineering challenge. Students built houses with various materials that could withstand the high setting of a blow dryer.

Rapid Changes Research Project

Third grade students researched rapid changes to the earth's surface. Students spent the entire day in the library gathering information and designing their projects. The final product was a mash-up of Puppet Pals HD and Strip Design. The final product was turned into a narrated book using Screencast-O-Matic.
