Welcome Back Wranglers!
Our district Library Mission Statement:
The Wylie Independent School District Library Media Program empowers students to be achievement learners, life-long readers, skillful researchers and ethical users of information.
Classes will come to the library each week on a schedule. Please remember to bring your book back so you may check out another.
Please do NOT attempt to clean or repair our library books as this can cause permanent damage to the book. Simply let me know if you see a page with a rip or notice a book needs some extra care and I will be more than happy to take care of it.
About the Librarian
Hello Wranglers! My name is Leah Moore, and I’m thrilled to be the librarian at Watkins Elementary for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my first year in the library, and my second with Wylie ISD.
Like you, I’m a proud Wrangler parent! My son Grayden is a first grade student at Watkins. Our family moved to Wylie in 2021 and we’re so happy to be part of this incredible community.
I’m an avid reader and can’t wait to share my love of books and reading with your children. I believe that reading opens the door to a lifetime of adventure and learning, and I’m so excited to start this journey with our Watkins family.
Don’t forget you can also check your local libraries for resources
