Welcome to our beautiful library! I believe that the Library should be a place to learn, laugh, and connect with each other through literature.  As a 21st Century Librarian, I consider the school library to be an information hub; where students may work on classroom projects, online research, search for and check out library books. I collaborate with teachers to create effective and engaging lessons that I teach in the library, providing a cross-curricular learning environment (click on the link below to visit the AASL website for standards taught in school libraries). Inspiring the love of reading and the desire to be a life long learner are the basis for my library lessons. Myself and library assistant,  Mrs. Hitch, are always willing to help your child find what they need to be an independent learner.

Sincerely,                                                                                                                         Rachel Brown, CTES Librarian                  AASL Standards Document: What We Teach
