Welcome to Dunston Primary's Library Page. My name is Eliza Bailey.  I am a lifelong resident of  South Carolina's Lowcountry. I graduated from Wando High School,   earned my B.A. in Political Science from the College of Charleston and Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from the University of South Carolina. This is my 6th year at Dunston Elementary and I am enjoying every minute of it! Prior to coming to Dunston Elementary, I was the Media Specialist at Cottageville Elementary School for 7 years. 

   The library’s mission is to create a community of life-long learners by providing materials and resources for all levels of readers and broad ranges of interests. We strive to help students learn to read for enjoyment and knowledge; and support the teacher’s technology and print material resources.
