Welcome to the Huggins Library

Mission Statement

Our library is:

  •   A welcoming, comfortable environment conducive for maximum student and staff learning and collaboration.
  •  An all-encompassing entity for encouraging students and staff to become lifelong learners, as well as critical thinkers.

  •   An encouraging body committed to facilitate strategies that stimulate student centered learning in academics, research and technology.   

It is my vision that a superior library media program should be the heart of the school where everyone feels comfortable and takes ownership for all the knowledge cultivated there.  

"Readers are Leaders"

Student Checkout and Classes

Students visit the library during their Specials rotation for a library lesson and to check out books. 

Kindergarten and 1st grade students check out one book per week, while 2nd-5th grade students may check out two books per week. They may not check out any books unless the previous ones are returned or rechecked.

Library Activities

The library sponsors two Book Fairs each year in the fall and in the spring. The proceeds from the Book Fairs help to buy new library books and additional materials.  The library also sponsors several programs including Accelerated Reader, Texas Bluebonnet Reading, and the Houston Rockets Read Nation. The library will be hosting a Read-a-Thon in the spring time. 

Volunteers

Library volunteers are an essential part of our program. They help in running the circulation desk, labeling and shelving books, which allows the librarian to devote more time to teach children the valuable skills of enjoying literature and allowing time for creative ideas to become reality. Please contact Mrs. Jurkowski if you are interested in volunteering.

Birthday Book Club 

The Birthday Book Club is a great way to celebrate your child's birthday and help support our library. It is never too late (or too early) to participate in the Birthday Book Club. All that you need to do is return the Birthday Book Club form along with a $20 donation (cash or checks made to Huggins). Then your student chooses a book that they would like as their Birthday Book Club book. The book belongs to the library and it will have a special dedication label in the book in honor of your child's birthday.

If your child celebrates a summer birthday, then we take this opportunity to celebrate their half-birthday! We can celebrate your child's accomplishments as well!

As a bonus, your child's name in placed on the Huggins Marquee for a week in honor of their birthday. They will also be the 1st person to "check out" the Birthday book. Any questions, or need a Birthday Book Club form then come on by and see Mrs. Jurkowski in the library.

Welcome to the Huggins Library!  My name is Ida Jurkowski.  I have a passion for reading!  I have degrees from University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M - Kingsville and received my Library Science Degree through Sam Houston State University.  My husband, Jeff, and I have three boys, Jarrid, Ethan, and Cael. We call Fulshear home!  Jarrid is a graduate of Texas Tech. My son, Ethan is a sophomore at Stephen F. Austin and Cael is a freshman at East Texas Baptist University. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching Cael play Football for ETBU.  I hope to encourage your children to love reading and become lifelong readers/learners.  I am looking forward to working with your children and helping them to find great books to read.
