Library Corner for the week of August 23, 2021
Our Student Staff Members
With the end of summer and the beginning of the new school year approaching, the Library would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our summer student employees for their hard work these past few months.
Thank you to Lily Hodgson, our Summer Reading Club Coordinator for pulling together an awesome reading program! Lily did a phenomenal job adapting the Summer Reading Club to be as interactive and as engaging as possible while still following the ever-changing public health guidelines. The Summer Reading Club could not have happened without her. We look forward to keeping Lily on as an Assistant Clerk through the year.
Also, the Library will be saying good bye to Miles Rosnow in September, but first we would like to thank him for all his help this summer.
Finally, come September the Library will be welcoming back Colter Zirk as an Assistant Clerk.
