Our school library program serves to spark a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and encourage independent library use. Kindergarten and first grade students visit once a cycle with their class to check out books. There are daily open library times for second grade through fourth grade to visit and check out books as well. The library is an open and inviting space that promotes knowledge and insight; a place where students can open books and open their minds for a better tomorrow.
On the walls of our library, you will find many literature characters reaching out. Some of the characters include Ramona, Ms. Frizzle, and Clifford to name a few. They invite you to come and enjoy the stories that surround you. The murals were created by Mrs. Bonwits, Mrs. Denlinger, and Ms. Hoffman-Buss.
About Our Librarian
Hello everyone, My name is Mrs. Bixler. I am your librarian as well as your computer teacher and STEAM teacher. The 2017-2018 school year is my 16th year of teaching and brings new excitement with the start of the STEAM classes. I am an alumni of Upper Dauphin Area, Kutztown University, and Clarion University. I am even still a student as I work towards my second Master’s degree in Instructional Technology. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and a Master’s of Library Science.
I live in Halifax with my husband Jason and our two children, Tanner and Abby. We have a black lab named Bo to complete our family. I enjoy going to my children’s sporting events and spending time outdoors. I also like to crochet and make crafts with my kiddos. As a family, we enjoy reading. Reading gives us a vacation and provides us with new experiences without leaving home.
