Best moment at St. Louis Catholic so far?  There have been so many, but one of the great moments this year was when a slew of students came to check out books.  There’s nothing that warms a librarian’s heart more, and thanks to the English teachers offering some opportunities for free reading choice, our circulation statistics went from 31 books checked out during the 1st quarter last year to 414 books checked out during the 1st quarter this year!  Wow!
What will we most likely find you doing on a weekend?  Watching one of my favorite shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime, organizing something in my house, yoga, reading, walking my dog, napping, going to Mass with my family, and a little computer work mixed in there somewhere.
