Old Town Summer Reading:
Summer is a great time to read a book just for the fun of it, and for the satisfaction of reading a really good story. Reading should be both pleasurable and thought provoking. In order to promote both types of reading, the Old Town Elementary Library will allow students to check out books over the summer. More Information

Round Rock ISD Librarians will be hosting “Pop-Up Libraries” in multiple locations on different days and times throughout the District this summer. Choose books to take home. Check the schedule for Pop-Up locations, times and dates.  There will be surprise visits around the District too!
