March Library Stats


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


First up are our excellent elementary students.  For the month of March 166,195 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 Pillow Panthers, Bryker Woods Panthers, and the Ortega SuperStars.


Let’s move on to our marvelous middle school students.  For the month of March 14,247 items were checked out by students! Awesome!  The top middle schools for check outs were the Murchison Matadors, Gorzycki Tigers, and the O’Henry Mustangs.


We go now to our hardworking high school students.  For the month of March 6,325 items were checked out by the students!  Hooray!  Way to the Bowie Bulldogs, Lanier Vikings, and Akins Eagles 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.
