Ms. Smith's Library Media Center

  • Welcome!!!

    I am Ms. Dewan Smith, Library Media Specialist.  I have been the librarian since 2003. I taught Special reading and Math 9 years prior to becoming a media specialist. Reading is one of my favorite things to do.

    Here is just a little information about me and my family.  I have lived near Nortonville most of my life (I spent a couple of years in Alabama when I was child). I have two children, Cade and Jade.  They are both married with children.  I currently have five grandchildren, 2 girls and 3 boys. I love spending time with them.

     My dad was a coal miner. He passed away in 2002. He always told me as a child to have more than one trade. If you lose your job, you will be skilled at doing something else. So I went to college and earned a business degree and I now have three degrees in the field of education. I currently am utilizing my Degree in Library Media Science. 

    My mom is retired and is the best mom ever! She stays busy as a church secretary where she attends services every week.

    I attend church at The River and believe that "Life is good"!  I believe in living well, loving much, laughing often and helping others when possible. 

    I believe in freedom and would like to say a special thanks to all our troops who help us enjoy it everyday! May God Bless You!

    Some of the things that I love to do are fishing, traveling, gardening, lapping up the sunshine on a warm day and going to the beach.  I enjoy reading all sorts of genre.  My favorites are historical fiction, history, and mysteries.  

    I always say adventures are endless in the library!  You can find a book about almost anything and any place.
