    Thanks for stopping by our media center page.  We have lots going on this year so pardon our growing pains as we transform our Media Center. My name is Crystal Joyce and this is my eighth year teaching in the media center/library.  I received my Masters in Library Science from Appalachian State University and my B.A in Communications from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and I ABSOLUTELY love being at Old Richmond Elementary.  I have 2 children, Sarah (who is a Junior and a Marching Mountaineer at Appalachian State University) and Stephen (who is a Senior at RJ Reynolds High School). In my spare time, I enjoy sports, reading, camping, being outdoors, visiting historic sites throughout the South, and research. Currently, I am the North Carolina School Library Media Association Advocacy and Governance Chairperson and on the Forsyth School Media Association Board. Some of my favorite authors are: Being a school librarian is the best job in the world!
    We look forward to working with the teachers, students and parents.  The media center is open from 8:30-3:30pm daily. Come by and see us!
