Happy 2015 Beverly Vista! I am honored to have joined the BV family as the new Library Media Technician. It has been my pleasure getting to know and assisting the students and families with their library and research needs during the first half of the school year.

I am passionate about the important role of the library within schools and society. I have multiple years of experience working and volunteering in the public and elementary school library systems here in Southern California. In 2012 I earned my BFA in Studio Art from CalArts, where I developed a rich love for research and self-guided learning as a means to inform my art practice. My hope is that through providing excellent library services to students, I will assist parents and teachers in their efforts to instill a love for learning and discovery within every student at BV.

Following Kristi Barefoot'steps, I know have big shoes to fill. The library will continue to promote many of the programs Mrs. Barefoot championed during her time here. Please take a minute to browse through the Accelerated Reader and MackinVia links found on the bottom right of this page.

If you would like to know more about any of the services provided here at the Beverly Vista Library please contact me through email at ecastillo@bhusd.org or come in for a visit!
