February Library Stats:

In the month of February:

  • 85 digital books were checkout on Overdrive and there were 314 logins to our other online library MackinVia.
  • 207 students came to the library on their own with a pass. An average of 19 students visited the library on their own each open day in February.
  • The library hosted 14 classes for checkout or or other activities this month .

  • 2020 Lone Star and Maverick Books are here! We have received most of the titles that were chosen by the Texas Library Association for these two lists for 2020!
  • We have received 83 new print books just this week and 170 new digital books on MackVia all the thanks to AISD which provided funds to supplement our digital collections this school year.
