Zilker Library: February 2016

Thank You!

What a fantastic book fair we just celebrated in the library! I am so grateful for all the friendly faces that I saw and met during our Peace, Love and Books Scholastic book fair. Your support made a huge difference!


Don't forget that the Zilker Library is always looking for volunteers! To sign up, visit the Volunteer Spot calendar at http://vols.pt/5rg2TB


Happy Valentine's Day,

2016 Bluebonnet Lunch

3rd, 4th and 5th grade students who read at least 5 Bluebonnet books celebrated with lunch in the library on January 25th and 26th. They also voted for their choice of the Bluebonnet Award winner- to be announced by the Texas Library Association on Friday, February 11th!


Special congratulations to the 4th graders! Their whole grade read 5 or more Bluebonnet Books and every 4th grader came to the Bluebonnet Lunch!
