The mission of the Davis Joint Unified School District Libraries is to foster a lifelong love and habit of reading while promoting skills and literacy in the ethical and effective use of information and technology among all students. This is accomplished by the instruction of teacher librarians supported by technicians, who work collaboratively with faculty and staff and oversee the provision of a wide variety of print and electronic resources.


I am Lesli McCutcheon, this is my fifth year as the Teacher Librarian at Patwin, and I am excited about being here! I divide my time between two school libraries -- I am at Patwin on Mondays & Thursdays; at Emerson Junior High on Tuesdays & Fridays; and I alternate between the schools on Wednesdays. Joyita Sen is the Patwin Library Technician full time, so stop by and say "hello!"

Are you looking for a way to be involved in the Patwin community? Looking for a place to volunteer? Love books and reading? We LOVE volunteers in the library! We can use assistance with classes, with books, or just helping to keep our space lively and beautiful! Send us an email or stop by to let us know!
