December SAT/ACT Mini-prep in the Library

Today the RRHS Librarians held our second monthly SAT/ACT Prep Mini-session in the Library.  We offer the students tips and tricks for acing the SAT and ACT. Today we used our iPads to have the students register for and start using the SAT Up app.  We will be holding 2 sessions in January (16th and 30th) and 2 sessions in February (6th and 20th) to provide assistance to the students who will be taking the SAT in February.  We have also created a BlendSpace page for students to access all of the all the resources we are compiling.

ALA helps TNT promote The Librarians

Image from

According to the December 5th edition of American Libraries Direct...

American Library Association (ALA) has partnered with the TNT network to help promote its new series The Librarians, which premieres December 7. The show (trailer, 2:16) is about an ancient organization of librarians responsible for protecting the world’s greatest magical relics (like Excalibur) stored beneath the fictional Metropolitan Public Library. ALA helped TNT find six adventurous librarians to highlight on the show’s website and social media channels: They are Liana Juliano, Felton Thomas (above), Henry Mendelsohn, Jessica Zaker, Audrey Barbakoff, and Aaron Schmidt. ALA President Courtney Young attended a premiere party for the show in New York City on December 3 to present one of the stars, Christian Kane, with an honorary ALA membership. Kane promotes libraries in this video PSA (0:54).

Book Review: Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan

This book has become one of my favorite books so far! Sarah Rees Brennan has some of the best books in supernatural in my opinion.  This book will keep you asking questions and at the edge of your seat to see what happens next! With family secrets kept for years, supernatural powers and unsuspecting killings, this will be one of the best books you will read! Go get it now! You would like this book if you like… supernatural & suspense.

Free SAT/ACT Prep Mini-Session!

Join us in the Library 
Friday, December 12th 
during all 3 lunches 
for a SAT/ACT Mini Prep!

Bring your lunch and join us for 30 minutes of tips and tricks for acing the SAT/ACT Test!

These sessions will be offered once each month to support the library's annual theme of Round Rock 101: Education for Life.
Through this theme, we'll emphasize the need to continue learning even AFTER high school - whether that entails matriculating at a university, attending a community college, joining the military, studying a trade, or blazing an entirely new path. Consequently, the library is encouraging and tracking student participation in various campus and local activities that prepare students for post-secondary learning (e.g. RRISD College Fair, college visits, academy activities, etc.) through targeted library programming.
