Welcome, I am Ms. Stillwell, your cheerful librarian at Sour Lake Elementary. I am a graduate of Hardin Jefferson High School and I have two wonderful children,
Hunter Stillwell who is a Paramedic, and Kellye Stillwell who is in the 11th grade. I
am from Dayton, Ohio, but moved to Sour Lake when I was 7. I haved lived in
Sour Lake for more than 37 years. 

Our library at SLE has an extensive variety of books available for student and faculty checkout. Also, we offer Accelerated Reader. This is a wonderful program used as a supplement to our reading curriculum. Students select a fiction or non-fiction book to read and then take a computerized quiz over the book. Teachers use the information to check a student's reading comprehension. This is a fun way for students to master reading skills for each grade level.  

 Encourage children to read on a daily basis, set aside 30 minutes each night and read together as a family, each one with their own book or let them read a book to you. Make it fun and they will want to do it!

  • SLE library regular schedule:
  • Open checkout starts after morning announcements.
  • The library closes at 2:30 pm each day. 
  • The library will be closed for special school functions.
