The librarian and library assistant have two separate schedules to accommodate the needs of the students and staff at Stahl Elementary. The librarian, Ms. Ford, schedules library lessons with individual classes. These lessons include using digital resources, digital citizenship, storytime, research skills, digital presentation, and navigating and using electronic books. In addition to lessons, students are also encouraged to participate in reading activities in and out of the library setting: Texas Bluebonnet Award, Nine-Week Reading Challenge, Battle of the Books, Read Across America and National Library Week. Ms. Ford also schedules and host visits from authors, illustrators, and local performers to encourage literacy at Stahl Elementary.
The library assistant position is a six-hour position.

In addition to her duties in the library, she also monitors and helps Kindergarten and First Grade students in the cafeteria and monitors day care students after school. She is an integral member of the library staff.
