Note from the Librarian:

Hi there! My name is Alex Arnold, and I am the new librarian here at Jim Plain Elementary! This is my first year as a librarian, and I am extremely excited to be here! I taught third grade in a small town north of Dallas, before moving to Austin! In my free-time I love to hike with my husband and our two dogs, and of course, I love to read! I am so proud to be a member of the Jim Plain Pride!
