Support Summer Reading for All

Half Price Books 1890 Ranch Shopping Center (1335 E. Whitestone Blvd. in Cedar Park) and Half Price Books Anderson Mill (13492 US Hwy 183 N in Austin) are offering to donate a portion of their sales from April 13 – April 29. Make sure you mention the “LISD Summer Reading for All Program” when you make a purchase at that store.

Have books at home your children have outgrown?

Why not donate them at the RPE school library until April 26. All levels of books, new and gently-used, will be accepted and all genres are needed (chapter books, picture books, non-fiction, fiction); however, the greatest need is for books appropriate for students in grades 6th through 12th.

The link will be closed at 1 pm every day and will be reopened at 3 pm for the next day. We will be accepting changes by phone as well, but we would prefer everyone to try to use the link.
