I have been the District Librarian at Muenster ISD since 2004. Having two libraries has been such a blessing. It is wonderful that all students have their own library to use. I am in the Elementary Library on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday and the JH/HS Library on Monday and Friday. Library Aide, Barbie Barnhill, is in the library that I am not in for that day. We offer weekly story time programs for the PreKindergarten through Second grade students and library lessons for students in the Third through Sixth grade.
The JH & HS library fiction is shelved by their genre however the elementary fiction is still shelved by call number with a sticker denoted its genre. We have a well rounded collection that includes fiction for all ages, interesting and informational non-fiction, and a variety of reference materials. We also have an assortment of eBooks in our collection. It is my goal to encourage all students to become independent, information-literate, and lifelong readers. Makerspace has also become a fun yet educational learning environment in the elementary library that the students thoroughly enjoy. I also serve as the Faculty Adviser for the MHS National Honor Society. I coach UIL Spelling for both JH and HS. I'm proud to announce that my HS UIL Spelling Team of Morgan Eldridge, Major Eldridge and Colby Endres were UIL 2A State Spelling Champions 2017!! Our 2018 team of Major Eldridge, Colby Endres, Savannah Bohl and Matthew Klement were State Qualifiers and Major placed 6th individually.
