Erin Bedell

Welcome to the Inspiration View Elementary Library. My name is Erin Bedell, and I love my job as a school librarian! 

As a school librarian I impact the reading lives of every student on our campus. My utmost goal is always to share book joy and reading joy with students. We know that when students have access to self-select books that they enjoy, their reading performance excels. I work hard to maintain a modern, engaging library collection that both appeals to our readers and also provides them the opportunity to further their learning. 
A school library is a place that supports all of the students and staff in a building. It is a welcoming space and can also be calming and low-stress. The best libraries offer a balance between print and electronic resources, and also provide a common location for the school community to come together for a variety of reasons. Libraries are often called the heart of the school! 
This year (2022-23) will be my 24th year teaching, and tenth year as a teacher-librarian. I am a Colorado Native, married to a photographer, with 2 children who attend D49 schools. We love to explore our state, travel and spend time together at the beach. Of course, you can often find me with my nose in a book!
