Mission Statement

Our mission in the Bob Beard Elementary Library is to promote the skills necessary for lifelong reading and learning, to foster the development for a love of reading, as well as to support the curriculum of Northside ISD.  We are striving to accomplish these goals by direct student instruction in age appropriate library skills and research strategies that relate to subjects being studied in the classrooms.  We also sponsor the Texas Bluebonnet Award and Accelerated Reader reading incentive programs.

The Bob Beard Library is open daily at 7:15.  We are open after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday until 3:30.  Students in kindergarten and first grade may check out one book at a time for two weeks.  Second graders through fifth graders may check out two books for two weeks.  Parents may check out 5 books for two weeks. 

Students may come in before school to check out books or take Accelerated Reader tests.  They may obtain a library pass from the teacher on duty in their hallway or be accompanied by an adult.
