“The Mary Ann (Molly) Goodnight Library”
The Texas Bison Student Study Group sponsored by The STAR DAY Foundation proposed the creation of “The Mary Ann (Molly) Goodnight Library (The Library)” as the “Official Library” of The STAR DAY Foundation with a primary goal to archive the digital documents created by The STAR DAY Foundation and Texas Student Study Groups established and maintained by The STAR DAY Foundation. The Library shall offer free access and distribution of all archived digital documents to the membership of The Library. These digital documents may include Story Bookmarks, Story Articles, Story Books and Story videos along with various Reports. The membership of The Library is composed of individual members, Texas school libraries and sponsoring Texas homeschooling families. The STAR DAY Foundation shall invite Texas schools to adopt The Library as a “Special Library” to support the after-school library expanded learning opportunities activities of Texas Student Study Groups charted by The STAR DAY Foundation in partnership with teachers and their students during the school year and summer student study sessions offered by The Library.
The Library shall initially be created as a “Virtual Library” at the website of The STAR DAY Foundation. In the days ahead, The Library shall be physically established at Camp Goodnight Texas in the City of Quitaque, now known “The Official Bison Capital of Texas” designated by the 84th State of Texas Legislature in 2015 as proposed by The Texas Bison Student Study Group. The Library shall plan, develop and conduct “The Mary Ann (Molly) Goodnight Library Luncheon Seminar” as an annual activity sponsored by “The Official State Bison Herd of Texas Fund” established by The STAR DAY Foundation on September 12, 2013, “The Mary Ann (Molly) Goodnight Day” in Texas as designed by the 83rd State of Texas Legislature as proposed by The Texas Bison Student Study Group. On the grounds of The Library visitors may enjoy “The Mary Ann (Molly) Goodnight Monument” designed by The Texas Astronomy Student Study Group featuring land and sky monument components illustrating The Great Texas “Old Blue” Constellation created by The Texas Astronomy Group in 2011 at the request of The Texas Bison Student Study Group.
