    It's Never Too Late!

    If you have library books to return, you can drop those off anytime. How awesome it would be for us to all begin the 2019-2020 school year with clean library check-in status!!


    There's a New SHARK in the TANK..and It's ME!    

    I have never met a shark face to face, but I'm ready! Please come see me in the library or wave when we pass in the hall. It can be pretty scary to be new, especially in a #sharktank; but I am so glad to have over 850 new friends to help me make our library a safe - but full of adventure - place for all of us.

 Welcome Sharks! I am excited to be a part of the Amherst Elementary School community and look forward to learning alongside everyone. I look forward to helping you, Sharks, discover your gifts and interests as you learn to LEARN. Please come by and introduce yourself, and let me know what you love to learn about. This is your library, and I want to make it work for YOU! Have a great year of learning, growing, and sharing!
