Hi Conway family! Welcome to the library! My name is Melanie Newton and I am the librarian here at Conway Elementary school. This is my 21st year as a teacher with Stafford County Schools and my 14th year as a Conway cougar. I obtained a BA in History and my NK-6 teaching certificate from the University of Mary Washington. I also hold an MBA from the University of Mary Washington. I am currently enrolled in the Library Media Specialist program at UVA/Wise and my library endorsement will be complete in December. I look forward to sharing a love of books with your children and can’t wait to introduce them to a diverse selection of authors and illustrators. It is my hope that every child will have access to books that represent themselves and other backgrounds. Through stories and shared reading we can find ourselves and learn more about each other all while instilling a love for reading.
