Quote of the Month

"One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time." Carl Sagan

Just finished The Chain by Adrian McKinty- not one of my favorites. Think I will begin reading more YA novels that have arrived in the library.

About Mrs. Harper

I am the librarian at BBJH. This is my 4th year in the library and my 21st year in education. I have taught science, ELA and I was an academic advisor at The University of Tulsa. I am originally from Oklahoma--graduated from Comanche High School and Oklahoma City University. I graduated with my Master's Degree in Library & Information Science from SHSU in August 2020. I'm married to Joe, I'm Grady and Whitney's mom, and I have three awesome dogs- Gus, Chief and Maggie. I love to watch sports, listen to music, run and hike with my dogs, read books, discover new technology tools and toys, and travel.
