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 dancer and photographer who is attending Oklahoma State University. 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."!
