Every day she welcomes students to the library and helps them select books that they would like. Out of the 12,000 books in the library, she chooses which books to read to different classes at different grade levels.
Sanders said she loves her job because she loves students.
“Kids are so smart and they have so much to talk about,” Sanders said.
Sanders began her career as a librarian when she started volunteering at her children’s schools. She then spent two years working as librarian at Almond School and has been at Gardner Bullis for three years.
“I loved the kids and I loved the books, so it was a perfect fit,” she said.
Sanders said her favorite book is “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Jester (Bullseye Books, 1988) because there are fun plays on words in the story.
Sanders said she loves to read because she can use her imagination while reading.
Some other duties Sanders oversees are helping students select books for research and supervising students who want to come during recess.
“It’s a great place for kids to come during recess who don’t want to deal with the big social scene on the playground,” she said.
