Lanier's Little Free Library

Little Free Libraries are free book exchanges that promote literacy while building connections within a community. There are over 36,000 Little Free Libraries around the world, and now Lanier has our very own. You can find it on the fence at the backside of school along Fairfield Drive near the back teacher parking lot. Feel free to take and/or leave a book. Do you have a bunch of books you'd like to donate? Drop them off in the Lanier library -- especially children's picture books, the most popular items sought by the greater Lanier community.

Field Trip to the Austin Opera. Join Us!

On Thursday evening, January 21, Emily Hersh and David Linscomb will take a busload of English III students to Austin Opera's performance of Of Mice and Men. Opera fan? Steinbeck fan? We have room for a few more chaperones and would love to have you join us!

Batteries, Markers, and More Ways to Go Green in the Library

Doing our part to help earn our campus Eco School Bronze Award, the library is expanding our recycling efforts by providing collection spots for used batteries and Crayola markers. (Did you know Crayola had launched a Colorcycle program to reclaim and repurpose used markers?) Used projector bulbs? We take those too!

Makerspace Mania!

Join us on Saturday, 1/30, for a morning of free hands-on fun for all ages! We're hoping to repeat last year's success, which Free Fun in Austin named #2 on their Top 10 Picks of the Weekend.

Coming Soon...

It's spring semester in the library, so it must be time for a new contest! This time, we're changing the focus from reading to technology and from students to teachers. There will be fun for all, and we'll have great prizes on the line. Stay tuned for details before the month is out!
