Welcome to the Atlas Library!
Hello, and welcome to the Atlas Library! My favorite genres to read are Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and Biographies; I have been the Atlas Librarian since 2010. I live on ten acres just north of Hayden with my husband, dog, chickens, honeybees, and local wildlife. My hobbies include backpacking, exploring, and cooking. I graduated in 2005 from Kansas State University with a B.S. in Sociology, along with a minor in Women's Studies, emphasis on Families. My claim to fame is helping Darren Sproles (former NFL Eagles Runningback) pass Economic Botany. GO WILDCATS!

Library class consists of story-time, library lessons, check-out, and reading their “new” books. Occasionally, we do fun projects or STEM activities. Watch for pictures on the social media pages! I do my best to make sure each student has an age-appropriate and reading-level-appropriate book to read when they leave the library, but if you have concerns, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Students 1st - 5th grade take books home and are welcome to exchange any time, not just at their weekly library class.
See what your student has checked out from the library https://library.cdaschools.org and choose Atlas Elementary. Then log in with your student’s school username and password, which you can find in Skyward.
Remember that library fines (the cost of a lost book) do not just go away, they follow your students through their middle and high school careers, so take care of those before you leave Atlas Elementary!

~ Roald Dahl (The Witches)
"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."
~Winnie the Pooh
"There is no frigate like a book to take our land away, nor any coursers like a page of prancing poetry."
A few bedtime story favorites of mine are: Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown; Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel; The Dragon in the Sock Drawer by Kate Klimo; and The Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis.
