Joy Lynn King
Ms. King is excited to welcome students to the district's three libraries. Nothing makes her happier than seeing a student's eyes light up when he or she returns to share how much they enjoyed a book or a series. Ms. King loves helping students become successful, enthusiastic, lifelong readers and learners.
Ms. King began her career at LCMSD at Neil Cummin's in 2001 as a fifth grade teacher. What a time that was! She has also taught sixth and seventh grade language arts and social studies at Hall Middle School and fifth grade at The Cove School.
Ms. King has always been an avid reader. Her favorite books as a young girl were Charlotte's Web and Pippi Longstocking. When she is not reading or studying, Ms. King is often playing clawhammer banjo, or urging her students to play.
and Kim Oliver
Originally from San Francisco, Kim Oliver moved to Twin Cities in 2005. She has been a parent volunteer at the LCM school district since 2009. Some of her favorite books include: The One and Only Ivan, I will Always Write Back and The Harry Potter Series. Ramona the Pest and Encyclopedia Brown are a few books that sparked her interest at a young age. When Kim isn't shuttling her 3 boys around, you can find her hiking, cooking or escaping behind a good book.
Amy Benz grew up in Larkspur where she attended LCM Elementary School, Neil Cummins for Junior High and Redwood High School. When her two sons started attending grammar school at Neil Cummins she began volunteering at the library and eventually began working a few hours a week. When The Cove School opened she began working there two days a week and has enjoyed every minute of it. One of Mrs. Benz’s favorite parts of working at The Halpern Library is when the kids get excited that a book they have been waiting for has finally been returned, because they are next on the sometimes very long wait list to check it out! You are never too old to read picture books and one of Mrs. Benz’s favorite one is Memoirs of a Goldfish. She encourages parents to come in and open a library account of their own and check some books out to read with their kids.
