Somers Middle School

Mr. Lykins


     Thanks for visiting the SMS website! I am Lee Lykins and am the middle school librarian (Nowadays we are referred to as “library media specialists”! Pretty impressive, don’t you think?) I enjoy working with students and teachers in the library. Please contact me if there is any way I can help you!

     I was born and raised in the Flathead Valley. Like my father, I have never found another place I wanted to live. Our homestead family has been part of this place over 100 years. As a result, I love to do the things you would expect. Fly-fishing and fly tying, canoeing and sea kayaking, hiking, hunting, camping, and more are outdoor activities I love.

     I graduated from Flathead High School and then attended the University of Montana to receive Bachelor degrees in Sociology and Elementary Education. A few years ago I finished my Masters degree in Education from Lesley University. I then enrolled and finished 2 years of online courses for my library media endorsement. I have been the librarian at SMS now for 8 years! I enjoy my job and helping others!
