My name is Jane Scott and I am so delighted to be a part of your child’s reading life. This year our reading focus in the library is Readers Are Explorers, Exploring Our World in Ships of Our Own Making. My goal is to encourage beginning readers and challenge good readers to become even better readers. Reading has been a lifelong passion and my favorite thing to hear a child say is, “I love this book!”
I look forward to serving your child and your family throughout the school year. I’ll be more than happy to help you and your child select books that are appropriate for their age and interest as well as within in their AR reading range. Our library is divided by genre and books are shelved by AR level to increase student independence as they search for library books. Our Read Through the Genres Challenge for grades 2-5 is explained in the attached digital flyer.

This is my 8th year as Legacy’s Library Media Specialist and I’ve loved every minute of it. After graduating with a BA in English from Samford University in 1984, I worked as an Editorial Assistant at Woman’s Missionary Union in Birmingham. My husband and I married in 1986 and we began our 30 year adventure together. With Bruce’s military assignments and his civilian flight jobs, we’ve lived in the Republic of Panama, from South Alabama to North Alabama and in between, and in Louisiana, as well as just outside of Washington D.C. prior to moving to the Huntsville area in 2007. Along the way, I earned my Masters in Special Education and taught for 12 years in that field before earning my Library Media certification in 2007. Together we’ve raised three beautiful children and fostered a teenage daughter for five years.
Our two oldest are now on their own. And our youngest is in college. I enjoy walking our two small dogs, hiking, and traveling with my husband. I love spending time with our kids whenever we get the chance. I’m especially being a grandmother!
