May 20, 2017—Capstone, a leading publisher of children’s books and digital products and services, announced Moore Elementary School librarian Kim Katz as one of its winners in “The Power of Librarians” national photo contest.
Katz’s photo and story will be showcased along with 12 other winners in a special edition 2018 calendar available in August at select Capstone events.
Celebrating the importance of librarians, the contest invited communities to nominate a school or public library media specialist who makes meaningful connections with students, describe why they should be featured in the calendar and share a photo that captured the spirit of the librarian’s talent or ability.
Moore campus secretary Kim Panter wrote the nomination summary on behalf of Katz, sharing that the campus would not be the same without its “Super Power Librarian.”
“You never know who you will find in the library as she is in costume at least one day a week,” Panter wrote. “She truly brings her book talks to life keeping everyone from PK-5 captivated by her story-telling ability. Her energy never waivers from the time she arrives at school until she shelves that last book!”
Katz’s nomination was chosen from among 325 entries submitted nationwide.
“I’m completely thrilled to have been chosen to be in the calendar. What an honor to have been selected out of all of the entries submitted,” Katz said. “I believe I have the best job in the world and I love helping to connect students to books in a hope that they will develop a life-long love of reading!”
