Karly Wilkins has been the library education technician at the elementary school since 2013. She attended Livermore Falls schools and grew up in our area, then graduated from UMF with an elementary education degree. She loves sharing cool books with students and getting to know every student in the school. She also loves children’s books just as much as her students do.

Miss Wilkins LOVES Bruins hockey and spending time with her family, especially her new nephew. In her free time, she enjoys baking, crafting, and, of course, reading.

His thoughts often focus on when and where he will take his next camping trip. He has three sons Keith, Tad, and Ian (who was recently married to Miranda).
