Alief Libraries Engage
A Year of Refreshing
The 21-22 school year was a year of refreshing in all Alief Libraries. With ESSER funds, librarians upgraded their book and makerspace collections. Once again we checked out laptops and hotspots to students and staff; delivered books to students in a variety of locals; held after school homework help; showcased literacy with evening story times and virtual makerspaces; and continued delivering eBooks via MackinVia! We were even able to continue our Battle of the Books competitions, our book give-a-ways and our Little Free Library program.
