We have a new Library Media Specialist, Ms. Elena Hernandez. She comes from the Downey Unified School District and is more than happy with her switch. Ms. Elena graduated from CSULB with a bachelor’s in education and a minor in communication studies. She loves each and every one of the students at Robinson Elementary and cannot wait to build strong relationships with the members of the Manhattan Beach community.

The Book Fair is here!!
Proudly hosted by, Pages: A Bookstore, our neighborhood bookstore located off of Manhattan Beach Blvd. Our Parent volunteers, lead by Jo Bloomfield, have helped set up and run the book fair in the library. Students and teachers will come into the library during the week after Thanksgiving Break (November 27th through December 1st) to buy and make wish-lists of all the amazing book selections displayed in the library.
