Library Media Center
Welcome to the Library Media Center!
Dorchester District Two libraries strive to support and enhance the district’s mission of leading the way, every student, every day through relationships, rigor and relevance. We do this by providing access to library books and instructional materials as well as teaching lessons to support all areas of the curriculum.
It is our goal to assist members of the learning community to become effective and ethical users of ideas and information, to develop the skills necessary for independent life-long learning and to have a love of reading for pleasure and personal growth.
Hello Dolphin Families!
I am excited to be beginning my second school year at Newington and helping all our students grow as readers.
My background includes an MAE in Social Studies from the Citadel, an MLIS from the University of South Carolina, and over 20 years of experience working with children and families in public libraries.
My goal is to provide a space that all students can explore, learn, and further develop a love of reading!
I am a graduate of Limestone College in Gaffney, SC.
I have been at Newington Elementary as both a parent and as a staff member for a combined total of 17 years.
Over the years I have enjoyed the privilege to assist students grow in confidence and become better readers.
While assisting Mrs. Johnston in welcoming students to the Media Center, it is my goal to continue to foster a love of reading for all of our Newington Dolphins.
