About The Librarian

Hello! My name is Julie Brooks, and I am the librarian at Running Brushy Middle School. I have been in education since 1994. I previously taught in Arlington ISD, Midlothian ISD, and was the librarian at Jim Plain Elementary in LISD before coming to Running Brushy MS. My gift of teaching continues while I share my passion for reading and inspiring a love for reading in students. I believe the library is the hub of the school and an enjoyable place to continue lifelong learning. I’ve been told my whole life that books can take you anywhere, and coupled with the information super highway of 21st century learning, it’s a win-win place to teach, work, learn, and play.
