Bluebonnet Reading Challenge Continues!

All 3rd-5th grade students are encouraged to read at least 5 Bluebonnet Books during the fall semester. Students will keep simple notes in their Bluebonnet journals and are eligible to win library prizes. In January, participating Tigers will join students from around the state of Texas to vote for their favorite title and take part in choosing the winner of the 2017 Bluebonnet Award.
