Welcome to Our Sam Houston Library!

Our library welcomes students and parents to come and read on Mondays after school. Information regarding the starting date is forthcoming.  Read with your child and ask questions to check for their understanding of their books, and see your child's AR scores go up when checked for understanding!

Library volunteers are always needed. Register to volunteer at "CCISD Volunteer Registration application." We hope to see you here!

Pizza Hut BookIt

All students in grades K-5 are able to participate in the BookIt Program.  Each month, October through March, the teacher sets a reading goal for the class.  As the students reach their goal for each month, they receive a coupon from the teacher.  The students can take the coupon to Pizza Hut to receive a FREE personal sized pan pizza.  MMMM!!!  Let's work together to reach that monthly goal and receive that free personal-sized pizza!
