Hello beautiful Lincoln Park Lions family! I am super happy to be the Media Specialist/Librarian at LPHS. I have always been an avid reader and one of my favorite things is to talk about books, smell books, recommend books, create book art, give books away, and surround myself with more books than I will ever be able to read in my lifetime.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions, suggestions, or want to talk about books.
Have a suggestion for the LP Library? Let me know by completing the Library Suggestion Form!

Libraries, and librarians, including school librarians, are currently subject to planned and coordinated attacks all across the country for providing young people with access to information and diverse literature.
