Library Services

Northside Libraries are the heart of each school community, creating meaningful and diverse learning opportunities, nurturing in our students a love for reading and learning, and developing in them the skills necessary to fully participate in society.

Our libraries purchase and maintain a current, relevant, and diverse collection of over two million print and digital materials for both study and pleasure.


80 Elementary School Libraries

20 Middle School Libraries

12 High School Libraries

2 Professional Libraries

Northside ISD has a total of 112 campus libraries and 2 professional libraries located at NAC and NLC.

All NISD libraries are staffed by professional, certified librarians. High school libraries also have a paraprofessional library assistant.

Studies consistently find positive relationships between having access to full-time, qualified school librarians and student performance.

Recently, all Northside libraries enjoyed a range of improvements: from major renovations to redecorating. This ensures every student an updated, enjoyable and flexible learning space.
