Library activities and procedures

Our library is truly a place of inclusiveness. While we actively promote students' love of reading and learning, we also collaborate daily with teachers to make the library a true hub of learning at Beaver Tech.             

Two students look at books in the library.

Students have the chance to visit once a week with their class to participate in lessons about media literacy, reading strategies, technology use, and any topics related to what they are also learning in the classroom.

We also have open check-out times where students can freely visit and peruse our shelves. The library also holds many student centered events and contests throughout the year, such as: bookmark contests, a book character pumpkin contest, reading BINGO, and dewey decimal scavenger hunts.

Recently, our National Poetry Month display contains blackout poetry and haikus written exclusively by our staff and students!

Our students are the heart of our school and we want the library to be a place where they always feel comfortable to grow their love of reading, succeed academically, and become leaders.

 

 

The number of books a student may check out depends upon their grade level:

Steam school in the library

The library is also home to two STEAM schools. 4th grade students have been able to grow their creative writing and technology skills with movie making and 3rd grade students have grown their reasoning and problem solving skills with our Breakout EDU boxes.

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.

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.
