About Me

Mercedes Hernandez. Teacher Librarian I've been working here at MVA since 2007. I love the feeling I get when students come back to ask for more books of the same or different kind/author after being reluctant to take a book they "didn't want to read" in the first place. I enjoy discussing books with students. It is fascinating how they get into the story and don't want to let go until they're done.
