    I loved books. I had a teacher in grade 3 that would not let us take chapter books from the library. We had to take picture books. I had been reading chapter books from the public library since grade 1. My librarian used to sneak me into the library to sign out whatever books I wanted. As I got older, I was a bit of a loner and didn’t have too many friends in my elementary school. Recess was pure torture. My librarian recognized this and asked me to help her shelve books during recess because “she couldn’t possibly do it all by herself.” I loved my librarian!

    I will always remember the librarian from my elementary school — Mrs. Moss. She not only taught us how to use the library, but she engaged us creatively by having us write and act out our own stories. And she helped us to improve our reading comprehension on all levels. Her teaching was a key part of the curriculum.

    +1 a librarian I remember is Mrs. Paulson. I had trouble learning to read and always felt embarrassed during reading time for our weekly library class and she offered free after school tutoring sessions to help further my reading skills. Because of her attention and kindness I discovered a love for books!

    +1 I will always remember my middle school librarians. I have since forgotten their names, but I loved that they seemed to really care about what I was reading and they always had suggestions for me. They let me read books in the back room that had not been put out on the shelves yet and things like that. 😀
