Library Spotlight:


Travis Elementary School Library

The Library at Travis Elementary is a hub of activity. From students checking out books every two weeks with their language arts teacher to learning in the makerspace, the library is the place to be! Students participate in a wealth of activities such as our annual Book Fair, International Dot Day, Book Giveaways with the Palo Pinto Retired Teachers, voting in the Texas Bluebonnet Award program, the county-wide Battle of the Books competition, and the Gateway STEM Club.
