Librarian Contact Information:

My name is April Adcock and I am in my second year as the WPES librarian . I have a bachelors degree in elementary education and a masters degree in library media science both from Jacksonville State University. At Walnut Park we work on a mostly fixed schedule allowing the students to check in/out books throughout the day. We also have a week of technology where we use the latest and greatest programs and apps.
