Tigers Read...Tigers Lead!

October FUN!

October is a very busy month in the library, and we have so much fun! Besides library lessons and fall research, the library hosts Tuscany's annual Literary Pumpkin Patch and the ever-popular Scholastic Book Fair. We end the month with Read for the Record and the 2nd Grade Fairy Tale Bowl. Our Tigers are busy reading and leading!

Read-In Relaxation!

Our Tigers enjoyed last week's HEB Read 3 Read-In. For more Read-In pictures, visit our Tuscany Heights Facebook Page. Tigers Read, Tigers Lead!

2021 Literary Pumpkin Patch

The Tuscany Heights Library is growing a storybook pumpkin patch, and we need your help! Participating is EASY! Each THE family is invited to decorate a pumpkin that looks like one of their favorite book characters and bring it to the library to “plant” in our Literary Pumpkin Patch.
