Looking into the Library


Bridget Fitzgerald, Staff Reporter

Even given the circumstances of online learning, the library is still here to help students through their research and their own pleasure of reading a good book. As of right now, there is a curbside library on Tuesdays and Thursdays during school office hours from 2:05-3:15. 

Our library has partnered up with libraries such as the St. Louis County Library, and the Brentwood Public library. In addition, Padlet is also being offered, and it is a free online tool for students and teachers so they can share their thoughts by posting resources to discuss. 

Our wonderful librarian Ms. Wilson is here to help and has been giving her famous “book talks” to students over zoom. She shares slides with information about books that go along with several themes. She explains that everything is still the same as before, minus seeing each other in person. 

One thing Ms. Wilson misses is seeing students around the school and talking to them about books she has found that she knows they will be interested in. 

Right now, Ms. Wilson is reading The Companion by Katie Alender, and she shared one of her favorite quotes, “I read a book one day and my whole life was changed,” (Orhan Pamuk). 

Ms. Wilson is happy to help with any questions about any books you would like to read, or if you need any recommendations, you can email her at [email protected]
