Zilker Library Fall 2018
Book Care 101
Be a Friend of the Zilker Library!
This year's goals include: increasing our collection of multilingual and diverse picture books and replacing two end of life Mac computers.
Donations this year are especially appreciated as Austin ISD faces budget shortfalls and, therefore, the budget for reading materials for our library has been decreased by 60% for the 2018-2019 school year.
Forms to make a contribution will be in Thursday folders, are available in the library, or can be downloaded below.
We appreciate the support!
Volunteer in the Library!
*Weekly volunteers are preferred, but volunteers are welcome to alternate with one another.
And don't forget about our Annual Book Fair! Mark your calendars for the week of February 25th!
Coming Soon to Zilker!
