About Us:

Maggie Yellow House Book CoverThe Library at the Heights Building provides check-outs for patrons from two programs. H-B Woodlawn Secondary Program and the The Eunice Kennedy Shriver Program which has its own librarian starting in Fall 2023.

Maggie Carpenter began serving as H-B Woodlawn’s teacher-librarian in Fall 2015. She came to H-B after many years overseas in international schools and then more recently an area magnet school for science and technology.  As a former history teacher and traveler, she loves reading about current events, cultures of the world and how kids learn and develop. She is interested in evolving technologies and their impact on culture and learning. She is dedicated to helping students learn 21st-century skills for resourcefulness, independence, and confidence. Her motto is, “Nothing will shape your life’s journey more than the QUESTIONS you ask.”  So, go for it!  Ask her your questions at Margaret .
