Magnolia ISD Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Magnolia ISD Library Media Center is to provide an environment where lifelong habits of learning, self-improvement, and self-expression are encouraged and where patrons can meet their educational, informational, and recreational needs.
Through this process, we will help equip learners with skills to navigate an information-rich world. The Library responds to the needs of users by providing clean and inviting buildings, well-organized and up-to-date collections, friendly professional service, and well-trained staff.

I am officially a Magnolia High School Bulldog and I'm so excited to be here! I am the former librarian at BBJH so I know most of the students from their junior high days. This is my 23rd year in education and my 5th year as a school librarian. 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.

The library is Room 1523 and is just to left of the front doors of the school once you enter Magnolia High School. 

Students have a variety of options for using the library in addition to checking out books. We have Makerspace activities, games, puzzles, and a Lego center. We have areas for quiet and group study. We also have chromebooks that can be used in the library, a phone charging station, and additional electronic and digital resources.

Students may check out up to four books at a time for a period of three weeks. Students may renew their books for a longer period, if needed.

To carry out our mission, Library Media Specialists, administrators, and learning leaders will work together to ensure that learners can effectively locate, access, analyze, synthesize, evaluate, and communicate information and ideas.
