Mrs. Nicole Winters

Hi! I'm Nicole Winters and I'm the librarian at Hallsville JH. 

I am excited about sharing the love of books with every student this year! In addition to regular class times, the library is open every morning before school, as well as during lunch periods. Students are welcome to come in to read, study, or complete homework. 

One of the fun projects we are doing this year is to encourage the 6th graders to read from the Texas Bluebonnet Award list. Each 6th grader who reads at least 5 books from the list will be invited to vote for their favorite. Their votes along with other votes from students across the state will determine the final winner. The deadline to read the 5 books and be voting eligible is January 23. In addition, those students who wish to go further and read at least 18 books from the list of 20 will be invited to our End of the Year celebration. The deadline for this will be May 10. 

In addition, students in 7th and 8th grade are encouraged to read books from the Texas Lone Star List. There is no voting associated with this list, but is meant to expose students to a wide variety of recreational reading. Students who read 15 of the 20 books on this list will also be invited to our End of the Year celebration. The deadline for this is May 10. 

I look forward to a great year!
