Library

My goal as Mercer’s Teacher-Librarian is to provide a dynamic and equitable space for reading, researching, and interacting with a variety of information resources. Every day at Mercer we aspire for our students to become empowered by encouraging a love of reading and supporting curiosity for the world around them.
