Kiva Liljequist

Welcome from the MLC library! My name is Kiva and I'm the Library Media Specialist at MLC. I come from multiple generations of teachers and librarians, and I'm so pleased to be teaching in the library at MLC. I am honored to work at such an amazing school. The families I get to work with are incredible! The teachers are stupendous! I love working in the library, teaching the rich variety that comes with it. How do you navigate the internet to find what's germane? How do you evaluate a web site to make sure it's legitimate? How do you access databases and use them efficiently? How do you avoid plagiarism? How do you find what you need in our library? What books might you fall in love with? What other books might possibly be good besides your all-time favorite?  All this and more is what I get to do every day! I am passionate about what I do and feel that our work in the library is essential to helping our students become literate in 21st century skills. If you have any questions, I can be reached here or call the school at (503)916-5737. I teach half-time and can be reached Mon-Fri from 8:15-12:00. This is going to be an incredible year!
