The Clayton Elementary Library in southwest Austin serves almost 900 students, as well as the teachers, families and staff who support them. Our community loves learning, books, and technology, and our library is one of
the places where all those things intersect.
The Accelerated Reader program is one of the ways we encourage reading and comprehension. Students self-select "good-fit" books, and take a short comprehension quiz after reading them. Students who reach their grade-level goals are recognized at an assembly, pictured in the hallway, and enjoy their lunch in the library.
Students choose! With so many awards given by adults, the Texas Bluebonnet program provides students with the chance to vote on their favorite book. Each year, the committee offers a varied list of fiction, nonfiction, picture and chapter books. Students must read 5 to be eligible to vote for books in January.
