    I'm Tara Christian, your Wilson Central Library Media Specialist.

    I'm happy to be a Wilson Central Wildcat! I am a long-time veteran of Wilson County Schools, having been a classroom teacher for 22 years, a K-8 librarian for one year, and now working at the high school level.  I hold a B.S. Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Library Science.  I look forward to working with high-schoolers on becoming smart researchers and life-long readers and learners. 

    I am married to my high school sweetheart, Camron, and we live in Lebanon.  We have two daughters- Molly Grace who is married to Cody and is a first year teacher at Southside this year; and Maddie who is 17 and a Senior at Wilson Central this year. 

    I love to read!  Some of my favorite books growing up were the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott.  Some all time favorites include Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls and Gone With the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell.  My more recent favorites include The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, The Rules of Survival, by Nancy Werlin, the To All the Boys I've Loved Before series by Jenny Han, and The Serpent King, by Jeff Zentner. I really love reading, so these are just some of my favorites that come to mind.  I hope you have so many favorites it's hard to list them too!

    Please let me know if you have book requests for the library.  We want to get the books you want to read!
