Welcome to Library Assistant Ms. Gaulin!
Hello everyone! I am Alana (she/her) and I’m originally from Pacifica, CA! It’s a beach town on the coast, about 10 miles south of San Francisco, famous for the dog surfing competition and the Taco Bell on the sand.
I moved to WA with my partner and golden retriever almost 2 years ago and am close to being done with my Masters in Library Science from UW. If you ask me about Winnie the Pooh, Disney, or Kelly Clarkson, I will have way too much information to share. I am super excited to be here at Ballard; come say hi!

March National Reading Month
Did you know March is National Reading Month? And studies show that just like going for a run exercises your cardiovascular system, reading regularly improves memory function by giving your brain a good workout. So set aside some time to put down those devices and read as a family!
Parent/Guardian Volunteers also help our busy library continue to thrive, so please reach out to Ms. Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to learn more about supporting literacy at Ballard High School.
