BNT@W Librarian


About me

Hi! My name is Mrs. Lanham, and I am the New Tech High School Librarian. I was born and raised in Kentucky where I attended Morehead State University earning a B.A. in English. I taught high school English for 15 years before earning my Master of Library Science from Texas Woman's University. This is my 8th year as a librarian in Belton ISD. In addition to serving the students of BNT@W, I serve as the lead librarian for Belton ISD.

I am married with two teenagers of my own who also attend Belton schools. Reading is my passion, and I love to share my love of books with the students of BNT@W. 

Welcome to the BNT@W Library! 

Our library is a vital part of our learning community for our students and teachers. The library and media services program provides guidance, resources, and collaborative instruction for students and staff to gain the skills necessary to become effective, life-long learners and ethical and creative users of ideas and information.
