What's New in Our Library?

New Books

We love new books! Check out our new book selection and be sure to make suggestions for any books we need to add to our collection!

Parent Library Accounts

Would you like to check out up to five books from our library for a two week period to read and share with your children? Fill out a parent library account application and start checking out books from our library.


Our school has a schoolwide reading program! Pick up a COLTS READ log from the library today!

Students are given a monthly minutes reading goal:

ECC-1st grade = 300 minutes per month

2nd-5th grade = 400 minutes per month

Students record book titles on the log and get a parent signature. When it's complete, the student brings it to the library and earns a spirit stick. Students also have the opportunity to earn invitations to library events throughout the year. Please encourage your child to read for pleasure, fill out their COLTS READ logs and return them to the library. Visit the library for more details or contact karen.piedra@nisd.net .
