SCHOOL LIBRARIES IN SPOTLIGHT FOR NATIONAL MONTH

April 5, 2021 

School Library Month

Granbury ISD school libraries are in the spotlight for School Library Month, which is observed annually each April.  School librarians were honored nationally on April 4, 2021. 

First held in 1985, School Library Month is the American Association of School Librarians' celebration of school librarians and their programs.  Every April, school librarians hold activities to help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong school library programs play in a student's educational career. 

School libraries ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information.  Librarians provide the leadership and expertise necessary to ensure that the library is an integral part of the school instructional program.  Libraries contribute to the individual growth and development of all students while fostering both excellence and equity in education. 

GISD school librarians and aides are:  Granbury High School – Tammy Burns and Tracy Luther; Acton Middle School – Adina Brassie; Granbury Middle School – Christy Jonas; Acton Elementary School – Leah Dawson; Baccus Elementary School – Kimberly Young; Brawner Elementary School – Kim Sterkel; Oak Woods School – Karen Golba; Roberson Early Learning Academy – Kellie Pollock; STEAM Academy at Mambrino – Randi McPhate.
