Miss Davis,  the new librarian, was nice enough to sit for an interview with Patterson Press. We discussed how long she had been a librarian and where she grew up. She has been a librarian for 14 years. She grew up in Baltimore but was born in New York.

Miss Davis loves her students and  loves working with them. Even though she splits her time between two schools, she still has time for each and every student and enjoys getting students at Patterson interested in reading. Miss Davis just wants us to put down the phone sometimes, pick up a book, and  read. This is  why Patterson has started “Circulation Thursday” from January  15 to the middle of May for the students or the teachers to take advantage of. She wants to see more people coming every Thursday to borrow books every week or every few days, like Ms. Edwards, who reads all the time.

If you love reading, Miss Davis can help you to find a good book that fits your interests. “Winter is a good time to curl up with a good book and it’s cold outside so it’s nice to be inside and read,” Miss Davis said.

Miss Davis ended the interview saying, “Students that want to be in Circulation Thursday must have a pass from their teachers to come to the library on that Thursday. Reading and writing can help in life because there is a lot to learn in books. I worked with a few students that don’t know how to read or write and I just told them try to read 20 or 30 minutes a day to get better at it or I ask them can they stay after so I can help them with it, because I enjoy helping students reach these goals and help them achieve what they want do in life.”
