Mission statement

We believe all children should have access to quality books and resources to inspire them to become life-long readers which will foster life-long learning. 

Our Librarian Mrs. Kirby received  a grant from Garland Education Foundation and Cooper PTA.  She was able to purchase new tables and chairs with that money.

Tables and Chairs


May 16-22 will be our Scholastic Book Fair.  You will be able to buy one get one free. This is a great way to build your home libraries and let your kids have new books for the summer. 

Mrs. Kirby recently attended The Texas Library Association conference in San Antonio. She is was able to get new books and awesome ideas for future library programming!
