Hello AISD family! Great things are happening at AISD libraries!


First up are our excellent elementary students.  For the month of January 199,243 items were checked out by students!  Woo Hoo!  Let’s give a round of applause to the Brentwood Bulldogs and the Kiker Comets for leading the pack in checking out the most books per student.  Not far behind them were the Sunset Valley Cheetahs, Becker Bobcats, and Pillow Panthers. 


Let’s move on to our marvelous middle school students.  For the month of January 18,398 items were checked out by students! Awesome!  The top middle schools for check outs were the Webb Wildcats, O’Henry Mustangs, and the Murchison Matadors.


We go now to our hardworking high school students.  For the month of December 10,565 items were checked out by the students!  Hooray!  Way to Lanier Vikings, Bowie Bulldogs, and Crockett Cougars 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.
