Libraries

South Texas ISD Libraries are hubs of active learning that enhance student achievement through collaboration, innovation and diverse resources. 

STISD has four libraries that support our district community: Biblioteca Las Americas (Mercedes), Eliseo B. Vega Library (Olmito), Gateway to the World Library (Edinburg) and the Rising Scholars Academy Library (San Benito).
