East Point Elementary school visit.

We have a wonderful partnership with East Point Elementary school. The entire school has visited the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Library and received a student library card to check out books.

 We had a great story time and a demonstration of all our library services. The wonderful school librarian Lorena Buck ran back and forth bringing library applications to us from East Point making sure that all of the students received a library card.

Thank you so much Principal Dana Boyd for making this possible, and having the drive to make it that much easier for all of your students to have access to reading. We were more than honored to have your students and your staff here at our little library.
