Summary

I'm a big ideas kind of girl. I always look at the job at hand and ask myself, "How can I do this better?" In thinking about the library as SHS, I don't just see a library, I see the potential for it to be the heartbeat of the school. More like the student union building we had in college. If you would like to talk further about my "big ideas" I would be thrilled to come in and chat.
