 September 2017 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 September 198,892 items were checked out by students!  Woo Hoo!  Let’s give a round of applause to the Becker Bobcats and the Blazier Bluejays for leading the pack in checking out the most books per student.  Not far behind them were the Maplewood Mustangs, Pease Bobcats, and the Reilly Mustangs.

 

Let’s move on to our marvelous middle school students.  For the month of September 26,250 items were checked out by students! Awesome!  The top middle schools for check outs were the O’Henry Mustangs, Murchison Matadors, and the Gorzycki Tigers. 

 

We go now to our hardworking high school students.  For the month of September 9,627 items were checked out by the students!  Hooray!  Way to the Lanier Vikings, Crockett Cougars, 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.
