The opening of minds, doors, and books: National Library Day

The two librarians, Connie Joyce & Sherrie Heinolle, sitting at the center desk in the front of the RCHS library.

National Library Day was first celebrated in 1958. It was sponsored by the American Library Association and was said to be celebrated annually on April 4. The holiday was created to celebrate and support libraries and the people who worked there.

The librarians keep the libraries clean and well-organized alongside helping students check out books. Additionally, librarians are capable of assisting students.

Take the Teacher Librarian, Ms. Connie Joyce, whose role is to watch over the library by keeping it a clean, well-organized, and inviting place. 

“We keep [the library] organized by subject and student interest,” Joyce said. “We keep a welcoming environment by having new furniture, lots of activities that students can enjoy, and lots of resources students can use.”   

The Library Media Technician, Ms. Sherry Heinold, also talks about her experiences helping the library stay in good condition.

“I always stay busy,” Heinold said. “I have to look around and make sure everything is up to date and the students are taken care of. [I do it] with the help of the team that works here together.”

Heinold shares how it’s important to understand and get to know the students of RCHS as the librarian.

“When students come in here, sometimes they just don’t want to ask where something is,” Heinold said. “Sometimes we have to be proactive and see if they need anything by finding out what they like and don’t like; then [we] start to build a relationship.”

Heinold continued speaking about the students and how it’s a nice environment for the school and students.

“It’s a perfect place for students to come to feel comfortable,” Heinold said. “Not everybody has big groups of friends, and some don’t want that. Some like their quiet time, some like to study; it’s good for everybody. It’s like a home away from home.”
