Library Services

Vista Grande Library is a branch of the City of Casa Grande Public Library. Unlike most school libraries, ours is a public library, managed and operated by the City of Casa Grande. Thus, the requirements of obtaining and the benefits/responsibilities of having a Vista Grande Library card are different than those of a regular school library card. In fact, though the Student ID serves as the library card, the card is also accepted at every public library in Pinal County. What this also means, however, is that student library cards are full-service, without restrictions of any kind. Library cards give patrons access to the public computers (outside the school day). Students may also check out DVD’s, CD’s, and other material commonly available in a public library. In order to enter the library, students are required to have a pass signed by their teacher during class time and have their school ID. Note: VGHS students may not use the computer lab or exit campus through the library during school hours. Students may not enter the VGHS Library through the school after school hours.

Services

Printing
Send you documents as an attachment to vgmakerspace@gmail.com then pick up your request in the library. Print jobs are $0.10 a sheet for black & white, and $0.50 for color.
 
Library Opens Early for Vista Grande High School Students
Do you need last-minute printing, book check-out, or pick up a HOLD? How about last-minute homework submission using our Wi-Fi? Vista Grande Library is open for VGHS Students from 7:35- 8 AM, Monday-Friday. Please do not come in to just hang out as you can do that at lunch or after school. This is intended to be a quiet time in the library for VGHS students that need just a little extra time to get things done.
 
 

Makerspace

Our science, technology, and art room has a slew of classes available for all ages as well as "open free time" for public patrons who can sign-up to use at their leisure. VGHS students can use the space during lunch time and afterschool to work on school or personal projects. We have sewing machines, art supplies, iMacs, video, music, and photo editing software, high-definition scanners, and more. Note: The programs and space is free and open to the public.
