  • Mission Statement

    The Wylie Independent School District Library Media Program empowers students to be achievement learners, life-long readers, skillful researchers and ethical users of information.

    Vision and Goals

    We are committed to supporting curriculum in all academic areas, being leaders in reading promotion, and integrating instructional technology, research, and digital citizenship across Wylie campuses.

    Studies prove that a robust school library program increases student achievement. Your Wylie ISD Libraries are committed to helping every child read and grow!*

    School Libraries Impact Learning

    Wylie ISD Libraries have over 200,000 books! Search for books at your children's library or on our online catalog. We promote a love of reading and literature by ensuring all students are able to freely choose age-appropriate materials of interest in their campus library. We also subscribe to multiple research databases for students of all ages. Your child can find accurate, authoritative, and fun articles for reading and research. Every library's goal is to provide students with free choice reading material, technology opportunities, digital resources, and research skills.

    Elementary Libraries

    At the elementary level, students have opportunities for story time read alouds, book check out, STEM/STEAM projects or reading challenges. Each campus has their own unique personality, but each library promotes reading and literacy as the foundation for academic growth. Keep abreast of book clubs, book fairs, and volunteer opportunities by seeking out your campus Library/Media Services webpage.

    Secondary Libraries and Bush Elementary Library

    At the 5th through 12th grade campuses, as well as at Bush Elementary, libraries are staffed with a certified, degreed Library Media Specialist. These Librarians are teachers who have obtained a Masters degree in education, literacy, technology, and librarianship. Librarians serve as active partners in the teaching and learning process by collaborating with educators to develop meaningful learning experiences through the integration of curriculum content and TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). Various book clubs, reading challenges, STEM/STEAM Makerspace projects, and book fairs are available at all ages.
