Landgrover, Samantha - Library Media Coordinator

I am so excited to begin my first year as the library media coordinator for Enka Middle School!  I have worked in the Enka District (go Jets!) since 2011, serving as the media coordinator at Hominy Valley Elementary for 8 years.  I have one daughter, a senior at Enka High School, who has been fortunate to attend the amazing elementary, middle, and high school(s) in our District. 

Originally from Miami, Florida, I moved to Asheville in 1990.  I studied Mass Communication and International Studies at the University of North Carolina at Asheville (UNCA) graduating in 1999, and earned a Master’s in Library and Information Science degree from Appalachian State University (ASU) in 2010. 

Our students and staff have access to a variety of print, online and digital materials in the media center, a space where all are welcome and encouraged to explore, recommend, and share.  Our library maker-space area also offers opportunities for students and staff to work on projects while exchanging ideas, responsibly engaging with hands-on equipment, and sparking creativity. 

I am looking forward to continuing our Battle of the Books program this year as we read engaging and highly reviewed books (click here for 2019-2020 book list) and prepare for the county competition in spring 2020.  

I also look forward to seeing you! In addition to paying a personal visit, feel free to contact me by email.
