LMS Library Corner
We are so excited to kick off the new school year in the Longfellow Library! We've had a few changes since last year, that I'd like to start off by highlighting. After working in the LMS Library for many years, librarian Matt Beall has retired. We wish him the best as he enjoys his next chapter in Athens, GA! Though we were sorry to see Matt leave, we are very fortunate to welcome our new librarian, Lisa Hedge, to the LMS family. Lisa joins us from Glen Forest Elementary, where she worked as a librarian for the last three years. Lisa brings a wealth of experience and passion to the position, and I look forward to working with her this year to further develop our library program.
To find out a bit more about this library program, we recommend exploring our library website and perusing our LibraryThing virtual shelf. The library website is the best way to find out about library events, new books, and research-related resources. Some other avenues we will use to communicate information this year: Twitter, bi-monthly newsletters posted in the KIT, and Blackboard. Please feel free to contact us by email (best!) or phone if you ever have any questions! If you are interested in volunteering in the library, please email Nicole Yakatan (firstname.lastname@example.org), our volunteer coordinator. Nicole will be happy to add you to her distribution list for the SignUpGenius. We always have plenty of projects in the library!

Books I Enjoyed This Summer
This is Lisa Hedge's first year as a librarian at Longfellow Middle School after being a librarian at Glen Forest Elementary School for three years. Lisa has an MLS from the University of Maryland. In her free time she loves reading, traveling, listening to music, and yoga. Some of her favorite books include Harry Potter, The Giver, and Catherine, Called Birdy.
