Welcome to Bransford Elementary Library!


Librarian - Raschel Boyd


Art is a part of our everyday life. Being the Librarian at an Arts Integrated School provides lots of opportunities for me to share a wide variety of digital and print resources about artists, dancers, musicians, composers, singers, actors and other performers. Personally, the arts play an important part in my family's lives too. I play piano and both my daughters have been involved in dance and theater growing up. My oldest daughter is a wonderful amateur artist and my youngest is a talented photographer who is now majoring in fashion design and production at Oklahoma State University. This summer one of our favorite outings this summer was visiting the Dior exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. Talk about art in fashion! It was fabulous! I am Gigi to two wonderful grandchildren that love to watch movies, sing, dance and color. We are surrounded by wonderful examples of art and I agree with Pablo Picasso that "Every child is an artist."!
