Gators Love to Read!

Welcome to the LCES Library page! 

Welcome to the gator library! 

A little about your librarian:

My name is Kendra Littleton and I am THRILLED to be your librarian!  This is my 19th year in education and my 13th in DeSoto County.  During that time I have taught 5th grade, been a librarian, and a literacy specialist.  

I love to travel, read, and spend time with my family.  I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 23 years and we have one 18 year old daughter named Riley.  She recently graduated from Lewisburg High School and is attending Ole Miss this fall.  We have one cat named Wilbur.  Can you guess who he is named after?

Please reach out if I can help you in any way this school year!

Book borrowing information:

Students can borrow and return books in the school library during their library activity and during early morning checkout between arrival and the tardy bell.

Students can place holds for books anytime from our online catalog Destiny
