February 2018 Library Stats


Hello AISD family!  Let’s take a look at the great things happening at AISD libraries!


First up are our excellent elementary students.  For the month of February 170,002 items were checked out by students!  Woo Hoo!  Let’s give a round of applause to the Blazier Bluejays and the T.A. Brown Bobcats for leading the pack in checking out the most books per student.  Not far behind them were the Kiker Comets, McBee Bumblebees, and the Becker Bobcats.


Let’s move on to our marvelous middle school students.  For the month of February 5,594 items were checked out by students! Awesome!  The top middle schools for check outs were the O’Henry Mustangs, Martin Eagles, and the Lamar Scotties.


We go now to our hardworking high school students.  For the month of February 13,435 items were checked out by the students!  Hooray!  Way to the Lanier Vikings, Bowie Bulldogs, and the Anderson Trojans for leading in most checkouts by students. 


Congrats to Garza IHS, ALC and Ann Richards Stars for being in a class of their own.  Their students are checking out a lot of library materials.
