A note from our Librarian

Please help us find our missing books! Mrs. Burton has sent notices home with students who have overdue/missing books, however the Herff library still has over one hundred books that have not been returned from last spring. Please make an effort to locate these books so other students may also enjoy reading them. We would prefer to have the books returned to our library rather than the fines paid. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Burton at Andria.Burton@boerneisd.net.
