"...a TEA Recognized district, is a place where care and concern for every student, parent and partnership is at the heart of everything we do. Our guiding documents — the Learning Model, 10 Ethical Principles, the Graduate Profile — are the foundation of who we are and ensure that we maintain a great learning environment for all students."
"The Leander City Council in March 1987 asked Blanche and Curtis Corley to organize a group of citizens to start the Leander Public Library, which was established June 15, 1987 as a non-profit corporation. A contract for ten years was negotiated with the City of Leander and signed July 1, 1987. The library opened June 27th at the old Leander High School in one room leased from the Leander ISD.
On November 16, 1989, with major assistance from the Lola Wright Foundation, contributions from the community and much donated labor, the library was able to move into a renovated metal building that was donated to the city by Preston Carlton. The library continued to be run with all volunteer help until early 1993. Since 1993, paid staff has augmented the volunteers, who continue to provide assistance.
In May of 2004 the citizens of Leander passed a bond issue to build a new Leander Public Library. Christine Mason donated the old Mason Homestead and the City of Leander purchased additional acres for the new library. Construction on the new library began in December 2005 with design by Moman Architects and Zapalac/Reed as the general contractor."
"Founded in 1968, The Hill Country News has provided local news coverage for this area since long before Cedar Park and Leander became cities.
