Our spring fair is in April and often includes titles that can be used for AP summer reading projects. Support your library collection by purchasing books for our homecollection.
Read It Forward
Every year all the middle schools in Pflugerville ISD select a title to ALL READ and then pass to our friends. The title is great for 6th - 8th graders and leads to great discussions and fun activiites. We will host an event in the spring for all students that participate in Read It Forward by reading the book and talking about it with the librarian. Watch for the selected title to be announced in Novemenber.
Book clubs meetings are held monthly during the grade level lunch time. Our book clubs encourage self choice in reading and then ask that members come to the meeting to book talk their most recent read with other students. There are sets of books for students that want to read a book as a group but all students are welcome as long as they've read a new title since the last meeting. Bring your lunch, bring your book, and have a great time getting suggestions for your next read.

In March we match with the madness of basketball with a battle of the books. Our most circulated titles are pittted against each other. Students have 24 hours to vote online for their favorite titles. We start with 32 titles and work our way down to 1 BEST read book. Which title will it be this year?
