The goal of the LPS library is for all students to develop a love of literature. Through the author studies, stations, and thematic studies, the Lewisburg Primary library will strive to reach students' goals in improving reading skills.

Ms. Judi Stewart
My name is Judi Stewart. I graduated in 1994 from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language Arts in 1996 from the University of Mississippi. I received my Library Media National Board Certification in 2018.
I taught second grade for sixteen years before making the move to the library. This is my 26th year of teaching. I am blessed to be a part of the LPS family.
My daughter, Merrill, is a junior at Mississippi State University. She is majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. She enjoys taking care of the animals on my parent's farm, The Office, and hanging out with her friends. My son, William, is a freshman at Northwest Mississippi Community College. William will be playing football for the Rangers! He loves cooking, fishing, and video and music production.
I am a huge Mississippi State Bulldog fan! Nothing makes me happier than watching my Dawgs play. You will find me in the stands for each and every game cheering my team to victory. I also am a avid reader! I love to discover new authors to enjoy. Not only do I read books written for someone as old as I am, I love to discover new books for my LPS kiddos! My prayer is that they will develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime!
Jan Brett has sold over 41 million books. She lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts. She decided as a child to be an author and illustrator. After attending the Boston Museum Fine Arts School where she studied art. Her first book, Fritz and the Wild Horses, was a beautifully written book with pictures that created a whole new world.
Jan Brett's favorite animal in a hedgehog. As a child, she had one named Buffy. She still shares her home with a few pet hedgehogs. In most of her books, you can find a hedgehog. Be sure to check her books to see if you can find a hedgehog hiding among the illustrations. Her books also have a special look. Each page has borders which add more detail to the story. She is the only author and illustrator to include this in all of her books.
On Christmas Eve, Big Snowshoe finds a way to see the animals' Santa and a Snowy Owl in a red cap swoops down with a pack full of presents. Never again will an excited Little Snow doubt that there is an animals' Santa.
What do you hope Santa brings you for Christmas? Write a letter to Santa and ask for your wish. Don't forget to draw a picture too!
