Mrs. Cynthia "Cindy" Sparks
This is my 14th year as a Patriot. I'm genuinely excited to work with all students, parents, teachers, administrators and staff. What a blessing the entire North Central community has been to me! Here in the library, we are part of the TEAM!! WE PROUDLY SERVE ALL HOUSES AT HOGWARTS. ALL WIZARDS ARE WELCOME! We are the extension of every classroom in the building.
I am your librarian, webmaster, technology contact person, Facebook administrator, Technology Integration Specialist and communications contact for media releases. I can be reached at (803) 424-2740, ext. 8813. My hours are 7:25 until 3:15 each day and I am available outside those hours by appointment. Afterschool book clubs for Boys Only and for Girls Only are held once weekly until 4:30 p.m.
I have been married to my best friend for 34 years and we have two wonderful daughters, two fantastic sons-in-law and two adorable grandsons.
They say variety is the spice of life. Here in the library I love my job in large part because of the huge variety of things I get to do! You may find me writing a grant, fixing a Chromebook, meeting with my colleagues, submitting a press release, teaching a class on plagiarism, taking students on a field trip, collecting data and analyzing our collection, reading to student groups, planning a lesson with a teacher, book conferencing with a student, running a Book Fair, updating our school website or posting to our school's social media site, unpacking a shipment of new books, setting up an author visit, designing a book display or assembling a bulletin board. It's all FUN!
