I visited Crockett Elementary in Franklin, Tennessee on January 18th. They have over 640 students in pre-k through 5th grade, so I set up in the gym where I spoke to one grade level at a time.
The librarian, Julia Andrews, prepared the students for my visit, introduced me at the assemblies, and provided me with lunch. I really enjoyed her tour of their amazing library.
Many of the books are organized by topic. Books in a series have their own shelf. So do the “Princess” books!
Ms. Andrews painted the walls to look like a castle.
The murals were painted by another artist, but Ms. Andrews designed each mural with a variety of characters from beloved books.
Thank you Crockett Elementary for a great day! I look forward to my next trip to Franklin, Tennessee.
