    2023/2024 book lists are coming soon!  See the division below for specific book lists.  

    The Name That Book contest, coordinated  by the HISD Department of Library Services, serves to acquaint HISD students with contemporary award-winning books, representing a variety of genres.  The district-wide competition is held in the spring.

    It is wonderful to have a place at school to exchange ideas and discuss incredible books with other students. The books on the Name That Book list really provide something for everyone. They are thought-provoking and challenging, and I have fallen in love with some great books I probably wouldn’t have read if it hadn’t been for Name That Book. I have also made friends that I probably wouldn’t have made if not for Name That Book!”
