Let Your Library Be Your Life Vest & Anchor:

It is our vision that members of the E. D. Nixon Elementary school  community will be equipped with 21st century learning skills to become effective users, producers, and communicators of ideas and information.


The library media center is open each day from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The media center operates on both a fixed & flexible schedule. Students are welcome to come by the library at any time during the day for research purposes, questions, or for check-out purposes.




The library has over 19,000 books, approximately 250 video titles, and has 18 fully networked computer terminals. Atriuum, the web-based computerized OPAC, can be accessed in each classroom as well in the library media center and at home.




Books may be checked-out for one week.

We do not charge a daily fine for overdue books. Overdue notices are sent  home by students weekly. Every attempt is made to inform parents that their child has items that are overdue.  Students' borrowing privileges will be suspended until the overdue item is returned.




Students will be charged a replacement fee for any book that is lost or damaged. Students' borrowing privileges will be suspended until replacement fee for the lost or damaged book is paid in full. A letter will be sent home stating the replacement fee.




Nixon Elementary participates in the following Reading Programs

 Accelerated Reader:

Accelerated Reader (A.R.) Enterprise is a computer-based program designed for students to help motivate and monitor their reading practice and develop comprehension skills. Three times a year, students are administered the STAR Early Literacy Test and the STAR Reading Test, which gives them an individual reading level. Students then read books at their appropriate reading level and take an Accelerated Reader reading practice quiz after they finish the story. Both the students and teachers are provided with immediate feedback on the reading progress. Students can also take vocabulary practice, literacy skills practice, and textbook quizzes. Students also are administered the STAR Math test for a recommended math level.

To see if any books you have at home are Accelerated Reader books click here:

Six Flags Read to Succeed Program:

Students can earn a free ticket to Six Flags by recording at least six hours of recreational reading in their reading log during the program's time frame.





We provide a bookfair twice a year. Flyers will be sent home announcing the dates of the fair. What a wonderful way for families to build their library collection at home!
