Students in grades 3-5 will learn about the Texas Bluebonnet Contest during their library visit from Sept. 2 - Sept. 13

    Bluebonnet book checkout and Contest will start on September 16 for grades 3-5.

    There are 20 Texas Bluebonnet books for 2019-2020 and there are at least 3 copies of each title in the library.

    Bluebonnet books are all shelved at the front of the library. If a teacher reads the book in class, students can count it as one of their titles.

    Only one Texas Bluebonnet book can be checked out at a time from the LDE Library.

    Students may read Bluebonnet books from the public library, e-books, audiobooks or elsewhere.

    There will be several Bluebonnet titles for sale at the Book Fair which starts on October 3. 

    There are special Friday drawings for those students that read 5, 10, 15 or 20 Bluebonnet books (prizes are normally movie passes and gift cards to Barnes & Noble).

    Dates for the drawings are: 11/22, 12/6, 12/13, 1/10, 1/17 & 1/24.

    Students that read 15 or more books will get to pick out a free book at the Spring Book Fair.

    Language Arts teachers will keep track of what students have read on the classroom Student Reading Chart and on Google Drive. Students have to score a 70% or higher for that book to count.

    After reading one Bluebonnet book and passing the AR quiz, students will receive a Bluebonnet bookmark so they can keep track of the Bluebonnet books they read.

    Students have to read five books by January 24 in order to vote in the library on January 28-30.

    The contest officially ends on Friday, February 8 at 3:00pm. Students are eligible to attend the Bluebonnet Blowout Party in the Spring if they read at least ten Bluebonnet books. 

    The winning book will be announced at the Bluebonnet Blowout Party which is normally in February or March.
