Mr. Ramirez, school librarian

Dear Euclid Family,

My name is Joel Ramirez and I have the great privilege of being your school librarian. A little about me: I have been working as an elementary school librarian for LAUSD for the last 5 years; have experience working at public libraries;  was born in Boyle Heights; and have an education in Library and Information Science. 

As your school librarian, my goal is to provide students access to books, information, a safe welcoming space, and to inspire in them a lifelong love of reading/learning.

Reading is essential for academic success and lifelong learning. Reading must be nurtured by parents from a young age. Please take time to read with your child. Create a library of books at home. Find out what they are interested in and look for books about that topic. 

The school library's doors are always open. Please feel free to stop by after school to browse for books together with your child. We have a wonderful school library with an amazing and ever growing selection of books. 

If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer to help at the school library, please contact me at: joel.ramirez1@lausd.net 

Thank you for reading! Read on!

What's New at the Library?

lapl visits euclid avenue elementary

Librarians from the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL) visited Euclid yesterday, December 1, 2022, for storytime, crafts, games, and free book giveaways for classes TK-2nd. Children's Librarian Jessica from the Malabar Library Branch taught students about the public library and read some awesome stories followed by Christmas themed art crafts taught by Outreach librarians. Our little Panthers had such a blast! Thank you so much LAPL for visiting our school! We hope to see you again :^)

Book Delivery!

Euclid Elementary School Library received a giant shipment of brand new library books this November thanks to funding provided to refresh school library collections. The majority of titles delivered were non-fiction books. If you have not signed and turned in a library permission slip to check-out books, now is the time!  A second and third order consisting of fiction and picture books are currently on their way! :^)

new spanish section

Spanish books now have their very own section in the school library, making it easier for students and staff to locate them. Yay! Spanish books were previously shelved alongside English books. Come and check them out sometime!
