I am Joan Rothe Media Specialist. I have worked as a Librarian/Media Specialist in elementary schools for nearly thirty years, in Ohio, Kentucky, Texas and Florida. I have been the Media Specialist at Gene Witt Elementary for 10 years.
At Gene Witt Elementary we have a large and varied collection of nearly 18,000 items, selected to meet the needs of all of our students and teachers. The goal of the library program is to make our patrons feel welcome and to provide them with the resources and skills they need to meet their educational goals. We also support the staff by providing materials that enhance their classroom instruction.
Parents and students are encouraged to make use of our Media Center both here at school and online, where we provide access to many electronic resources. As a member of the our Gene Witt Community parents are also eligible to come to the library and open a community account and check out books from our collection. As a community member you are eligible to check out five items at a time.
Please contact me if you have any special requests or needs that I can assist you with, and please visit us either in person or online.
