A retired librarian from Academy School District 20 was selected to participate in a special Library of Congress program this month.

Mary Johnson, who was the librarian at Eagleview Middle School, was selected from a nationwide pool of more than 300 applicants to be a part of Teaching with Primary Sources Summer Teacher Institute which runs June 11 through 15.

Johnson is working as a consultant for the Library of Congress Educational Outreach program. She will coordinate a new TPS Network and other social media outreach efforts.

She has been involved for a number of years with the Teaching with Primary Sources program, starting as an American Memory Fellow in 2000 and has since become a frequent workshop presenter and consultant for the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Western Regional Program headquartered at Metropolitan State College of Denver.
