LIBRARY

The LBJ/LASA High School Library

Situated in the center of the academic wing, the library is one of the most dynamic places on campus. Its multi-purpose function lends itself to hosting book clubs, art shows, banquets, meetings, guest speakers and annual exams. However, the primary purpose is to assist faculty and students and support their academic growth and success.

While in the library, students have access to computers, free printing, and a wide variety of school supplies and art materials for projects. They can also check out print books from our large collection. The collection is available for searching at https://catalog.austinisd.org/client/en_US/default

Students also have access to a vast array of virtual resources through the MackinVIA app, including ebooks, audiobooks and 44 databases. MackinVIA can be accessed through the student portal on a Chromebook or by downloading the app to phones or other devices through the App Store. Students use their portal id and password.

During virtual learning you may contact the librarian at elizabeth.switek@austinisd.org for questions, ideas, or help with classes and research. Announcements about book club meetings and other library news will be posted on the LBJ/LASA Library Blend page; parents are encouraged to sign up to receive Blend announcements. Information about curbside library book pick-up will be posted on the Blend library page.
