Welcome to Mineral Wells I.S.D.
Great Things are Happening at Mineral Wells ISD!
Thank Your Librarian this Week!
Mineral Wells ISD joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers. National Library Week is April 13-19.
Libraries are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the hearts of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study.
Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
The Mineral Wells ISD libraries serve students and families of Mineral Wells ISD by providing access to print and eBooks, online database and a variety of information. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
This week in honor of this celebration, the National English Honor Society is sponsoring literary character dress-up days at the high school. Each day will feature a different novel and the high school students are allowed to dress up as a character from that book and will have a chance to win a gift certificate to The Book Satchell.
The themes this week at the Mineral Wells High School are:
Tuesday: Harry Potter
Wednesday: The Lightning Thief
Friday: Comic book character/hero
*As a reminder, masks are not allowed.
