A Season of Thanks!

We have so many reasons to be thankful here at Zilker! I feel especially thankful for all the love and support shown towards the library program. Thanks for making Zilker a GREAT place for kids!

On the horizon in the library:

-Lots and lots of new books, many recommended by students!

-the Scholastic book fair is just 11 weeks away!

-a Zilker Library website coming soon

Have time to donate? I'm always looking for volunteers! Sign up to shelve books, create book displays, help prep materials for lessons and more by visiting the Volunteer Spot calendar HERE. And don't forget to follow the library on Twitter (@ZilkerLibrary) and like us on Facebook!

Many thanks,

Mrs. Sharp

Introducing PebbleGo, a kid friendly and engaging online resource!

PebbleGo is one of the best online resources around for kids to use for research. It's fun, engaging and very kid (and teacher) friendly! Thanks to Friends of the Zilker Library donations and the Zilker PTA, we now have a yearlong subscription to this resource!

For the username and password, email Mrs. Sharp!

(This information may not be posted online, but teachers and staff can share it and families can use it at home)


During the last week in October, Mrs. Sharp shared many silly (and spooky) monster stories. Students then had a chance to make their own monster at the Zilker Library Mon-store. We had a blast!

First Annual Storybook Pumpkin Patch

The First Annual Storybook Pumpkin Patch was a huge success! Thank you to all the students and families (and classes) who participated! The Zilker Library was filled with pumpkins galore the last week of October, all decorated like characters from some of our favorite books. There were about 55 pumpkins brought in- wow! Check some of them out below.

In the Zilker Library...

Many thanks to these families for their donations to the library in October! Welcome to the Friends of the Zilker Library family!
