Home/Library News

Hi everyone! My name is Mandy Watson, and I am your child's librarian at Decker Prairie Elementary. This will be my 14th year of teaching and my 8th year as librarian. I look forward to seeing your child come each week to the library to check out his or her books, to hear me teach a lesson, and to participate in library activities such as read alouds, technology sessions, or library stations/makerspaces. I hope my lessons and stories I read aloud will inspire a love for reading and learning in your child!

Look around this site to learn more about our library. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy learning and reading!
Mrs. Watson
