Two Public Libraries Just Around the Corner!

Each year, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade students take a walking field trip to the Saginaw Library to be introduced to the summer reading program. During one of our Think Tank sessions, it was suggested that grade levels go more often because it is so close. We want all of our students and families to be aware of these resources and be familiar with using them.

Also, I encourage all teachers to take advantage of our local library service. Much like our campus library, the librarians are willing to pull sets of books for you to use in your classroom. They will have them ready for you and all you have to do is pick them up. No more excused that you do not have enough books in your rooms; there are so many resources to make this happen. :)

Saginaw Public Library is located at 355 West McLeroy Blvd, Saginaw, Texas 76179. Saginaw library is open late on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 8:00pm! Call for more information regarding story times and programs both for children and adults at 817-230-0300 or visit their library website at http://www.ci.saginaw.tx.us/103/Library .

The Northwest Branch of the Fort Worth Library is located at 6228 Crystal Lake Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76179. Thursdays they stay open until 8:00pm! You can call them for more information at 817-392-5420 or visit their website at http://fortworthtexas.gov/library/branches/northwest/ .
