    Hello, Ralya Readers!

    I’m Mrs. Garmon, and I’m your new librarian! I have been volunteering in the Ralya library since the beginning of the school year, and my husband and I are parents of two Ralya students--so I cannot imagine a better place to come to work every day. 

    My love of reading goes all the way back to when I was an elementary school student, when I enjoyed visiting my school library and poring over books. Eventually, this love of learning led me to become an English teacher. For 13 years, I taught at Okemos High School, and now I am thrilled to join the Ralya family and work with second- through fifth-graders!

    I am also excited to share with you that, thanks to your support of the Scholastic Book Fair in February, we have been able to purchase many new books for the Ralya Library. New books have been added to every section of the library: fiction, intermediate readers, series, graphic novels, and picture books. If you have a book in mind that you would like to see added to our collection, please look for the Book Suggestions clipboard at the check-out desk and write down the title. 

    Parents: Volunteering in the library is easy and fun! If you would like to help reshelve books and care for our collection, please email me: garmonjr@haslett.k12.mi.us.
