Meet your library staff

Our librarian is  Ms. Taylor. This is her second year at Caldwell. She has been a Garland ISD Librarian for 14 years. She loves helping students find books and find answers to the research questions they have.  She believes that every person is a reader. They just need to find that perfect book.

Our library assistant is Ms. Dewberry. This is her first year at Caldwell. We are so happy she is here and she is ready to help students find their perfect fit books. 

Looking for something to read?

Our Caldwell Library has lots of resources that can used when looking for the next book to read and enjoy. 

If you are in third, fourth, or fifth grades, the Bluebonnet list is an excellent place for you to start. This list contains 20 books hand selected by librarians across the state of Texas. In addition to being source of  excellent books, if you read 5 of the Bluebonnet books by January 2022, you will be eligible to vote in the Bluebonnet voting. 

If  you are in Kindergarten, first, or second grades, the 2x2 list is an excellent place to find picture books that are sure to delight. 

If you are going on a trip and/or won't be able to carry many books with you, MyOn to the rescue! MyOn is an online platform that is full of all sorts and genres of e-books. All GISD students have access to this online tool. Students can log into Ready Hub, select Renaissance, and start reading!
