At the Library
We are excited to add a new member to our library family. Drew Kirk has joined our team and is working as a high school page. I asked him to write a few paragraphs about himself so we could get to know him better. This is what he said:
"There are a lot of interesting things that happen in my life, from where I go to school to the people I hang out with, to all the jobs that I work. One of the most interesting things about me is that I love to write. So that is probably why I am so interested in working in the library. It seems like an adventure every day as I forge through all the authors’ names and titles of books as I put them away.
"I am a high school student, a junior at Highland High School to be exact. I take many classes and though I might not be the best student in the world, I try my best. Hanging out with friends is one thing that I love to do. And writing when I have nothing else to do.
"I am a very busy person with four jobs now. I work at the library, working at KFC/Taco Bell, delivering a route for the local paper, and mowing lawns during the summer. I don’t really have time for any after-school activities, but when I do have some time left in my day, I make sure to use the time to the advantage of myself and others.
"Basically that is my life at the moment, in a nutshell. I do a lot of things. Yet at the end of the day there is nothing better than knowing that my hard work paid off. The stress of having multiple jobs was worth it. I am excited to be a part of the library team."
So, make sure you come in and meet Drew, the newest member of our team.
Mark your calendars on May 1. You are able to register your children for this year’s Summer Reading! Grades kindergarten through fifth-grade are welcome to attend. Please register your children at the front desk of the library starting May 1. Registration ends May 27. We are excited to “Dig into Reading”!
