About me:
I have been the librarian at Skippack Elementary since the building opened in 1998. I have an undergraduate degree from Ursinus College, and a Masters in Library Science from Kutztown University. I love teaching all students from Kindergarten through 5th grade, and watching them grow and learn over the years. Getting students connected with great books is my favorite part of the day.

The library assistant, Mrs. Batka, has been at Skippack for 20 years. She started as a parent and volunteer, then a Title 1 Aide, and has been the Library Assistant for the last 10 years. Mrs. Batka is the friendly face who greets every student whenever they come into the library.

Please reach out to either of us with any questions or feedback. Email is usually the best way to contact us.

Welcome to the library!
All students will have regular library class once per cycle. In addition, we have an "open door policy," which means that students are welcome to come and trade library books any day or every day. There is no need to wait for the regular library class.

If you have questions or problems, please contact me or Lisa Batka.
