MISD Librarians Earn Prestigious Award M ansfield ISD’s “And the Winner is…” event received the Texas Library Association’s 2016 Wayne Williams Library Project Award. The award spotlights a project that exemplifies the highest levels of achievement, professional standards, and inspiration for other libraries. An elementary student was happy to go on stage and accept the award for Best Poetry Book. “And the Winner is…” is a glamorous red-carpet evening hosted by librarians from several MISD elementary schools. Students vote for their favorite books in the months before the event, and the winning literature is announced at the glamorous Oscar-like ceremony. The project was spearheaded by Lynn Kostel (Anna May Daulton Elementary), Susan Buckles (Tarver-Rendon Elementary), Anne Wallace-James (Elizabeth Smith Elementary), and Tracy LaHue (retired). MISD librarians noted that the event improved library circulation and helped students and their parents get excited about books. family d.r.e.a.m. center 2200 FM 157 Suite 200 • Mansfield, TX 76063 Text “dream” to 76959 to 817-225-4144 receive coupons via text Dance • Tumble • Birthday Parties • Art/Music • Ladies Fitness (pilates, yoga & ballet sculpting) 50% OFF A monthly group class in DANCE OR MUSIC 20 School & Family 18 Mansfield Mansfield School & Family $30 OFF BIRTHDAY PARTY Princess Ball & Tea Party, DJ Hip Hop Dance Party or many Art Parties to choose from
