Welcome to Washington Elementary Library. I am Mary Priske, the full time teacher librarian here. I am so excited for the year! Along with regularly scheduled class visits to the library, I will also be working collaboratively with teachers in their classrooms. I am also planning some whole school reading promotion activities and book clubs for some grade levels. Click on the link at the right to access my library blog. Looking forward to a great year!
