    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.

     

    Library Policies:

    When books are returned they will be immediately placed into a minimum 3 day quarantine; after which time they will return to circulation

    Due to quarantine limiting the amount of books available in circulation at a given time we will start our year with each student checking out 1 book. 

    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.

    Classes will come to the library every week on a schedule.  Please remember to bring your book back so you may check out another.

    Remote learners will have full access to their library. Including a scheduled day and time to pick up a book should they like to check one out.

     

    Don’t forget you can also check your local libraries for resources

    Volunteers

     

    Unfortunately, at this time we cannot have volunteers in the library.  

    We have some of the BEST parents and I am going to miss your help in the library.  We know this is only temporary and I look forward to the day that we can have you back!

     

    About the Librarian

    Hello! My name is Marsha Wade, and I love being your Watkins Library Specialist.  This is my third year serving our students in the library and can I just tell you, it is the absolute BEST!!

    I cannot wait to start this year together!

    A little about me... I am happily married to my husband Ryan. We have three beautiful children; Eliana, Xander and Asher.  My husband is deaf and my entire family is fluent in American Sign Language. Eliana will be in 10th grade at Wylie East High School this year. She LOVES all things band and color guard.  If you make it out to a football game you will see her bright smile as she is tossing her flags on the field.  She also plays oboe and is an avid reader.

    Xander was a proud Watkins Wrangler. He blessed us with 8 amazing years of giggle filled life, and passed away from a chronic condition Sept. 5, 2016. Xander had a zest for life, laughter, and heroes. We miss him everyday and know he would be so excited that this is where I get to be each day.  Asher is our youngest at 5 years old; he is over the moon excited to join the Watkins Wranglers as a Kindergartner this year. 

    I am passionate about books, especially children’s books! I enjoy being with my family, playing games, reading aloud to my children, and writing.

    I volunteer with an organization known as, Books are the Beginning.  We help maintain libraries in different schools in Africa.  Teaching their teachers how to implement books into their lessons, reading aloud etc. It is a beautiful organization and I’m honored to serve with them.  In the summer of 2017 we went to Uganda, Africa and were scheduled to go to Tanzania summer 2020 until covid cancelled plans. I am excited for the opportunity to serve with them in the future.

     Our library is a place for students to stretch, grow, relax, explore, discover, ask, solve….it is a place to escape to far off lands, and ask as many questions as you want.
