All students visit the library once a week and this is called their "Library Day". If a student finishes a book early, the library offers open checkout times to exchange for new books. All books checked out one week should be brought back the next class visit to the library to be checked back in or renewed. All books not brought back by the next library class time are past due. The number of books a student may check out depends upon their grade level:
Visiting the library teaches normal check-in and check-out procedures, how to find a book using the online catalog system, and technology-based activities. However, a variety of programs and activities are offered throughout the year to enhance student participation and learning.
Texas Bluebonnet Award
The Texas Bluebonnet Award is a unique program that encourages reading for pleasure and is aimed at students in grades 3-6. Each year, 20 books are chosen as the “Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List” by the TBA selection committee. Check out this year's Texas Bluebonnet Book nominees at http://www.txla.org/tba-nominees.
If students read a minimum of five books from the current master list (or have the books read aloud to them), they have the opportunity to vote for their favorite title during the month of January each year. The author of the book receiving the most votes statewide is declared the winner of the Texas Bluebonnet Award. Visit the Texas Bluebonnet web site at http://www.txla.org/tba to learn more details.
