Welcome to the Malala Yousafzai Elementary Library!
My name is Mr. Burris and I am the Librarian here at Malala Yousafzai Elementary. I am also joined by my wonderful assistant, Mrs. Gonzalez. I am so excited to help open up the world of literacy for our students! There is nothing in this world like a good book.During the 2021-22 School year, students at MYE will be checking out books from the Library during their Library Outclass that they are allowed to keep for 2 weeks. Students are always welcome to bring them back early. The books are then sanitized before being put back out for students to check out. If a student forgets to return their book, they can check out a new book on their next Library Outclass when they return their book. Students are always able to check out online books, day or night, via 1Link with our online reading app SORA. Younger students may still use Tumblebook or MyOn if they prefer.Students have their choice of books in the MYE Library. We do not level the books or check out books based on reading levels. We do equip students with the skills to find a "Just Right Book." Students are encouraged to pursue their interests by reading a fiction book or to learn something new in our non-fiction section. The library staff loves to make book recommendations for students to help ignite their love of reading.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns I can be reached at Cody.Burris@fortbendisd.com
This year we will not have Matchbook, but instead we will be participating in the FBISD BOOKAPALOOZA! Stay tuned for more info!
