Patron of the Week!

In recognition of her generous giving, Mitzi Calbreath has been named Collinsville Library’s most recent Patron of the Week! Mitzi was nominated for this prestigious award in recognition of her frequent donations of books and audiobooks for the library’s collection, most recently she donated two big bags full of high-quality hardcover books, many in large print. Mitzi’s favorite items to borrow from the library are a wide variety of audiobooks (anything from suspense to romance, depending on her mood) and CDs, including everything from Frank Sinatra to Christmas music, regardless of what time of the year it is, because she finds it uplifting. To quote Mitzi, “There’s enough in life to make you unhappy, so it’s nice to find things that make you feel good.” Mitzi really enjoys using the library’s online Card Catalogue to request items in our system and our Interlibrary Loan to get a hold of items that aren’t. A special “Thank you!” to Mitzi for the donations and for being a great library patron!  If any of you have items you would like to donate to the Library, we accept donations of new or gently used items all year round.
