Please add to this list!

TASL is collecting information about Texas school librarians who have been honored for teaching. I know that many of you have been selected for Apple Corps and probably been given other recognitions that I don't even know about. 

Now is not the time to be shy! Please visit the blog post below and click on the link to add your name to the School Librarian Hall of Fame!


I want an Overdrive Media Station!

Winners of the Overdrive Media Station--
drumroll please...
  • Vanston Middle School
  • Poteet High School
The machines are still being configured but we should have them ready for you for next school year!

Summer Reading Challenge 2016

Read books this summer and win prizes! 

Join us for the 2016 Summer Reading Challenge! 

Here's how to participate:

Join the Google Classroom for MISD Librarians. You should have received an email invitation, but it might be in your spam folder. If you can't find the email and want to play, comment on this post and I'll send you the code to join.

Download the printable and check off the categories of books you read this summer. 

As you read, share your progress in the Google Classroom and on social media using #misdsrc16

Bring your list to the Lunch and Lit summer luncheon to share what you have read so far.

The librarian at each level with the most categories marked off when we come back to school will win a prize! 

You can get started right away. The challenge will run from June 1- August 12. 

Happy summer reading!
