            I (Katherine) wanted to say a big, heartfelt “thank you” to the school librarians who attended the first Librarian Gathering at the library last week.  It was wonderful seeing (and in some cases meeting) you ladies and getting to know you.  All librarians want the best for their students/patrons and if we pool our resources and work together it will be great for the kids and great for us as well.  I am looking forward to working with you this school year and beyond.  Thanks so much for coming!
