All of our library classes begin with a lesson or story time followed by centers and checkout.

Please remind your student that library expectations are to sit, look, listen, and do no harm.

You are encouraged to review the library information on the tabs to your left.  Also, don't forget to check out the reading resources here and the student resources, including our library catalog, here.

 

Mrs. Lemacks' Bio

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Lander University in December 1994. I  earned my Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from USC in 1996.  I am certified in early childhood education, elementary education, and as a media specialist.  

Upon graduating in 1994, I worked as a long-term sub at Colleton Elementary teaching fourth grade and at Ivenia Brown. In 1996, I began working in Hampton County as a computer instructor and bus coordinator at Hampton Elementary and later as a media specialist at Ben Hazel Primary and Brunson Elementary.  In 2005, I  returned to Colleton County as the media specialist at Black Street Elementary where I was Teacher of the Year in 2008-2009.  I moved to Northside beginning with the 2009-2010 school year.

I am married and have two wonderful boys, Logan and Aaron. I also have a lovable Golden Retriever named Zeke.  In addition to reading, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.

Message to Parents: 

The library is no longer just about book checkout.  Students learn a lot about being media literate.  Of course, we still have storytime experiences with fiction books.  However, we also spend a lot of time learning about how to handle nonfiction material (informational text).  We look at how to use the internet effectively and safely.  We discuss paying attention to the fact that media messages surround us constantly, whether it be through TV, magazines/newspapers, songs, billboards, etc. 

As a parent, you can help by supporting your children in being media literate.  Help them to become proficient readers by encouraging them to make the most of our library and the public library.  Ask them about their library books and to share what they are reading with you.  Let your children see that you value reading by giving them opportunities to see you reading not just for information, but for enjoyment. Support your children in using technology safely and with your guidance.  Talk with them about the materials they see on TV, radio, magazines, etc.  

Message to Students:

 I am so happy that you will spend some time with me in our library each week.  I not only hope that you will choose new library books every week, but I hope that you will take those library books home and enjoy them.  Share what you are reading with your family and friends.  In addition to getting books, I will also help you learn about nonfiction and the Internet.  Please make your best effort in the library.  Together, we can have a great time and learn many new things.
