High School Partnership Program

The CSUN University Library is proud to partner with Los Angeles Unified School District high schools and other local high schools in and around the San Fernando Valley.

A student's school library and Teacher Librarian should be their first stop for research, reading, and studying. CSUN University Library works to support our local schools, libraries, and students by offering tours, reference and research assistance, and some borrowing privileges. Program information, including permission slips for parents/gaurdians, will be sent to LAUSD principals and teacher librarians in the Fall, or can be requested by contacting Outreach Librarian Brianna Limas. Please see below for details about the High School Partnership Program, including program sign-up and book borrowing.

What library services are available to high school students?

Interested high school classes or student groups can plan a Library tour and receive Librarian-led instruction to support their research projects. For more information about Library tours, please see the Library Tour page.
