WELCOME TO THE READING HIVE!
 
The library is open and ready for readers!  This year each grade level and age group will focus on a new reading list from the Texas Library Association.  In Pre K, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades students will hear books from the 2X2 reading list. Students in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades will read, listen to and explore the Texas Bluebonnet Reading program in which 200,000 students from all over the state of Texas participate.   
For our 7&8 grade students we have 20 new Lone Star Books, which provide a variety of fiction and non fiction titles to choose from.  Students from the High School can visit the library to find titles from the Taysha reading list. 
The library hopes to see all our students soon! We wish everyone a great year of reading and learning!
