Library News

Eura Brown Students and Families:

I want to take a moment to say Thank You to everyone that has played a part, whether big or small, in the last seven years here at Eura Brown in the library. My time here as your librarian is comingWinnie the Pooh Quote to a close sooner than I had ever anticipated when I began here seven years ago. I have accepted a position in our neighboring system at Southside High School. This decision was not an easy decision for me to make. I love the Gadsden City School System and being at Eura Brown Elementary. This decision came down to making a decision that was best not just for me, but for my family.

I will miss being with the students and watching them learn and grow into young men and women full of determination and inspiration!!! I will also miss working with you as their parents! Eura Brown has THE BEST parent support around! Your investment into your child’s education was a key part of my dream of bringing our library to life and making it a place that our kids and even you wanted to spend time. Without your help and support, this wouldn’t have become a reality! I will forever be grateful for all you have done to make my dreams for EB come true! I will always claim you as my EB family.

Thanks for seven wonderful years of fun and always remember:

“If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together,
There is something you must always remember,
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think,
But the most important thing is, even if we are apart, I’ll always be with you.” – Winnie the Pooh

 

With Love,

Mrs. Brewer
