Our Fall HCMS Book Fair will take place in the HCMS Library Dec 6-10 (8:00am - 4:30pm). Students will visit the fair with their LA classes but can also come on their own any time. Families are also welcome to stop by to shop. 

Allowing your student to purchase a book from the fair is a great way to support independent reading, especially over the winter break! 

And remember, books also make great holiday gifts!  

‘Tis the season for giving!  The HCMS Library is excited to give back to the Austin community by supporting an Austin-area school.  Sanchez Elementary suffered a huge loss in Library books during the pandemic.  Our goal is to purchase 200 books for their school Library.  Please consider sending your student with an extra $5 - $10 dollars to purchase a book for the Sanchez Elementary Library.  

We accept cash, CC, checks (“HCMS Library”) and are proud to offer the no-hassle Scholastic eWallet option!  All you have to do is set up the account, add funds, and send them to the fair empty handed!  We can simply look up their account at the register. You can also invite family and friends to contribute to your student’s account. Click HERE for more book fair and eWallet information.

We still need a few book fair volunteers!  Sign up for a shift HERE

We’re so excited about the book fair and we know your student will find some great reads! 

Contact Heather Schubert with any questions.

Welcome back, Cougars!

I hope you had a great and safe summer.  

I had a lot of fun this summer.  My family and I went to New York and camped in Mesa Verde National Park and Chaco Canyon National Park (see pic of me reading at our campsite).  

I read a lot of great books this summer and I've shared some of my favorites below. 

I'd love to hear what you read this summer!
