"There is no such thing as a child who hates to read, there are only children who haven't found the right book"
Thank you for stopping by the BPA library website! Here you will find information on all the exciting things going on in the library!
My name is Mindy Shock, and I am the librarian. This is my 4th year at BPA! I am a former teacher, turned stay at home mom, who missed being in the classroom so much! When my oldest son was going to start Kindergarten at BPA, I found out the (amazing) PTO raised enough money for a part-time librarian, I immediately applied. And here I am.
I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and went to UC Davis for undergrad and SF State University for my teaching credential. My husband and I moved to Arizona for his job in 2010 and have lived in the neighborhood since. We have 2 sons, one in 3rd grade and another in his last year of preschool.
I am honored to be part of your student's academic career here at BPA. I hope I can help instill a love of books and reading with them and make the library a magical place.
