 I am thrilled to serve your child as his/her librarian!  I look forward to helping him/her become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher and ethical user of information!

 

Students may visit the library at any time for book exchange.  Whole class projects and library classes will happen as needed throughout the school year.  My goals are to teach your student how to find and use resources, use the research process and appreciate great literature. 

Please encourage your child to enjoy and take care of our library materials and return them for more.  Also, please enjoy the library books WITH your children! 

For more information, please call me at 918-272-8115.  We also have a Facebook page, Mills Media Center. 

Happy Reading!
