Library procedures

The Lister Elementary Library is open and accessible to all currently enrolled Lister students.  All grade levels are offered library classes each week with library lessons designed to support the classroom curriculum.  The students check out books each week.  Opportunities for enhancing reading skills are available to students through open checkout times Monday-Friday.  Detailed library information is sent home at the beginning of each school year.  Lister supporters are always welcome to stop in and visit the library.  We look forward to meeting each of you!

Susan Stevens Crummel

Lister was fortunate to have a visiting author come to our school. Students had the opportunity to observe and learn from Susan Stevens Crummel as she explained authoring a book, illustrating a book, and how she imagines and creates her ideas. An entertaining reading session followed, with a lot of fun student participation.

Dr. Seuss' Birthday

We honor Dr. Seuss' Birthday with a week long celebration of Read Across America.

Many fun activities are planned throughout the week including:

  • Green Eggs and Ham breakfast
  • Guest Readers
  • Dr. Seuss hats for sale
  • Dr. Seuss photo booth
  • celebratory dress up days

Book fair

Our library offers two book fairs throughout the year.  One in the Fall and one in the Spring.

Students are allowed to make a "wish list" to take home, or they may bring a parent/guardian to the late night book fair that is offered once during the week of the book fair.

Summer reading program

In an effort to help students from falling behind in important academic skills, Garland ISD and Scholastic Books have paired together to give all current Kindergarten and 1st-grade students at Lister a packet of books and reading activities to enjoy over the summer.

summer reading winners

Upon returning to school in August, the child will hand in their Reading Log and Book Reports provided in the packet to their new grade level teacher.  Prizes and rewards for participation are awarded the first week of September.
