Mrs. Holm, Librarian

Hello Bilbray Patriots!
My name is Mrs. Holm and I am so excited to be your librarian! I am a Las Vegas native and don't see myself leaving any time soon! I am married and have two amazing kids.  I went to UNLV where I earned my degree in Elementary Education.  I began teaching in 2008 and soon went back to UNLV for my Master's in Library Science.  I began as a librarian in 2013 and never looked back! I love being in the library and helping kids find a love for reading.  I also have my GATE endorsement from the University of Phoenix which I received in 2018.  When I am not in the library I love being with family.  We love to go camping, fishing, trail riding, and going to sporting events.


Mrs. Leon, Library Assistant
Resource Links:
Students can now view library resources from home, search our library, search databases, check out ebooks and place holds on books from home.  Students' username is their student number; Students' password is their first name.
Book Donations:
Do you have elementary level books at home collecting dust? Are they in good condition? Can you see yourself parting with them?  Well then, think about donating them to our school library! When we receive them, we look through them and see what will fit in our collection.  If something is too old or most likely won't get circulated, we will give them to classroom teachers to add to their classroom libraries or to students who may not have books at home.
Book Check Out Policies: 
  • Kinder will begin starting to check out 1 book in January.
  • 1st grade will be allowed to check out 1 book at a time unless they are working on a class project.
  • 2nd - 5th grade will be allowed to check out 1 book to begin the year.  Once they have demonstrated responsibility and proper book care they will be able to start checking out up to 3.   This is to encourage them to pick out a variety of book types.
  • Students are allowed to return books and check out new books daily, regardless of whether it is their library day or not.
  • Students who have overdue books or unpaid fines will not be eligible to check out books.  Students may always access the ebooks available on myON and Epic.
