(December/January Edition)

Wow!! What a winter in the Sonntag library! Even though the year is half over, the activity in the library has just begun! Students and staff members alike have been busy checking out books as well as utilizing library resources. Furthermore, Bluebonnet Readers celebrated the end of the Blubonnet Voting "season" by casting their votes to voice their favorite book from this year's list (see pictures below). In addition, the library launched the 3rd annual Six Flags Read to Succeed program, the 'Read It Forward' program, as well as a brand new 5th Grade Readers Book Club! Check out the stats below and check back for more information about the happenings in the Sonntag library for the month of February! Happy reading!!
