    About:

    My name is Amy Marquez and I'm the librarian for Marcia Garza Elementary. I love reading and I can't wait to get our students excited about reading as well. We have a gorgeous new library with books to fit every interest. Our school library has a "book store" feel to it, with our books organized by genre such as: adventure, fantasy, poetry, historical fiction, etc. This will make it easier for our students to explore a wide variety of genres in preparation for the STAAR test.
