Patron of the Week!

Katherine Ross, a junior at Collinsville High School, is this week’s Patron of the Week! Katherine was nominated in appreciation of her numerous hours spent volunteering as a Homework Helper in the Children’s Library. While Katherine likes to check out all types of non-fiction items (everything from biographies to documentaries) from the Library, her favorite author is Jane Austen, and she fits right in as a member of our Classics Book Club! Katherine, who is looking forward to being a senior this fall, likes to stay involved at CHS. Not only is she the President of the Science Club and Secretary of Mu Alpha Theta, but she’s also a member of Science Olympiad, Spanish Club, and a co-founder of the recently created Student Congress, a branch of the CHS Student Council that aims to give a voice to students who may not otherwise have one.

Thank you, Katherine, for all your homework help! If anyone reading this is interested in helping with homework after summer, or would like to volunteer their time to help with summer Children's Programming, please get in touch with Alison Donnelly, our Children's Librarian by emailing her: alisond(at)mvlibdist(dot)org
