CENTER FOR LEARNING & INNOVATIONWelcome to the CL&I!We want our students to enjoy visiting the CL&I & feel privileged to have the opportunity to check out so many books. Parents can help encourage kiddos to take care of our book collection by keeping the books in a designated spot in your home and always caring for them as if they were your own,
Overdue notices and bills for lost books will be emailed or sent home with the student periodically. While we do not charge fines for late books, we do charge if a book is not repairable or lost. If a lost book is found or returned within a year, the total fee will be refunded to you. All fees are used to replace lost books.
We are always accepting suggestions for new books if you find something we currently do not have. Please FILL OUT THIS FORM or stop by & let us know and we will do our best to accommodate the suggestions we receive.
Texas Bluebonnet Award Nominees 2017-2018The TBA selection committee is responsible for selection of the books on each year's master list. Suggestions are solicited from librarians, teachers, parents, students and other interested persons. A new list of twenty books is released each year at the Texas Book Festival in October. In selecting titles, the committee considers student interests, relevant content, reputable reviews, and literary quality. Both fiction and nonfiction books are represented. The author must be a living U.S. citizen or an author who resides and publishes in the United States. Books considered for the master list must have been published in the United States. Only titles published within the three years prior to the master list release date are considered. Textbooks and new editions of existing titles are not eligible.
