Welcome To The Library!

My name is Cynthia Elizondo and I am the librarian at Helotes Elementary.  I love sharing great stories with students and seeing the smiles on their faces when they check out a book.  We encourage reading through many different programs at our school.  There is something for everyone!  
All readers are rewarded at Helotes Elementary.  

If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.  I will get back with you within 24 hours.

Second, Third, and Fourth Grades can check out 3 books at a time.
Fifth Grade can check out 4 books at a time.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Early Childhood.  I also have a Master's Degree in Library Science.  I taught Kindergarten at Helotes Elementary for eight years before I became our librarian.  I love this school!
