Students were allowed to come to the library on Mondays during their lunch time to eat and read a book together.

Big Game

Bluebonnet Book Club

Students stayed after school each week to read books from the Bluebonnet Nominated list. In February they were invited to a Bluebonnet party to celebrate their reading and vote for the book that they thought should win the Bluebonnet Award.

Book Fairs

We had TWO book fairs this year.

Profits from our book fair sales go right back to our library to purchase more books and makerspace items for our kids to enjoy.
