My name is April Adcock and I am in my fifth year as the WPES librarian. I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s 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.
