About the Librarian

Hi! My name is Karen Burt and I am the librarian at Amy Parks. This is my second year at Amy Parks and my 19th year in education.  I have been a librarian for the past 7 years and love the fact that I get to see every student in the school! Before that, I was in the classroom and I have taught everything from pre-school - 8th grade.

I received my bachelors in Elementary Education with a specialization in Reading from East Texas State University and my Masters in Library Science from North Texas.  I love reading, kids and teaching and I believe that the library is the heart of the school. I look forward to a fun filled year.

“Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination.  They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life.
  Libraries change lives for the better.”
