Congratulations to Midlothian ISD elementary Library Media Specialists who were named Texas Library Association SMARTy Award finalists for Best Practices and Innovation in Library Management. They submitted their innovative digital summer reading program called Virtually Blooming Bluebonnets, which encouraged 21st century learners across the community to interact online as they read and discussed books from the 2013-2014 Texas Bluebonnet list. Students were able to connect with peers, teachers, and media specialists. This successful reading initiative will be implemented once again this summer.
