Olmos library provides a welcoming, resource rich environment to students, teachers, and parents. We promote, and encourage pleasure reading, and engage learners in inquiry activities that seamlessly integrate technology.
|Library Assistant||5 hours per day|
The library remains open all day. This is made possible by having a library assistant. During library lessons and lunch, the library is able to remain open to students and teachers to use the computers and to check out books.
During the week of book fair, our volunteers help decorate, monitor, and are essential to the event running smoothly. We also have student helpers that help organize shelves throughout the school year.
Students are encouraged to visit the library with their class, or on their own as they finish their books. Our Library Assistant makes it possible to check out to students during my lunch and during library lessons.
The library closes only during testing and reopens when testing completes. This year we were very fortunate to keep the library open almost every day. The library was only closed for a portion of the day during STAAR testing and TELPAS testing. These "half days" added up to approximately 3 days closed.
Parents are encouraged to come by after school to check out books with their children.
