Mrs. Brittney Diamond- Muns

Leadership Team

 

 

Hello, my name is Brittney Diamond Muns and this will be my 5th year at Shepard and my 1st year at the Librarian! I have always had a passion for reading and writing! I cannot wait to help your student develop the same passion for learning! I currently have 3 cats, 4 guinea pigs, 2 dogs, and a baby girl! When I am not teaching, I love going for walks, catching up on my favorite Netflix shows, and taking care of my plants. 


  • Office Hours

    I do not have specific office hours as I make myself available to the needs of the teachers, students, and families between the hours of 7:15 am - 3:30 pm. Should you need to contact me, please send me an email, give me a call, or if you are a student, simply stop by the library and we can meet then or plan a time that works best. 

    I do a variety of classes and special activities with the teachers and grade levels throughout the week, so each day can be different.

    Library Pacesetters may arrive at the library at 7:20 am on their scheduled days. 

    Students are allowed to come to the library before school to check out books from 7:20 am - 7:40 am and then they can return after 8:00 am with prior arrangements with their classroom teacher and the librarian. We close the library from 7:40 am - 8:00 am for announcements.

    The phone number listed below is for the librarian's office. To call the library circulation desk, please call 469-752-3180. Please do not leave messages for the librarian at the circulation desk.

  • Volunteering in the Library

    Volunteering is a great way to contribute to this community of readers!

    Most often, the library needs books to be reshelved. We use the Dewey Decimal System to organize our Information section. It can seem daunting at first, but once it is explained, it's really quite simple. Below is a video that explains it well.

    Our Fiction and Everybody (picture book) sections are alphabetized by the author's last name.
