Getting volunteers to help out and fill in the holes from time to

time is sometimes a task, but for someone to dependably show up

and make a difference for 17 years is nothing short of remarkable.

That’s what Janice LaFoille has been doing at Park Village Ele-

mentary School. Whether it’s been placing books back where

they belong, bringing a computer lab into the library or even be-

ing the interim school librarian when there was a need, she’s been

there for the kids. Making the library a magical and fun place for

students is important to her. In fact, there was a student she saw at

a football game one time that had attended Park Village years ago.

“She remembered me working with Ms. Peterson,” Ms. LaFoille

recalled, “ she told me she always felt safe there...that’s encourag-

ing.”

The dedication ceremony at Park Village included the warm words from current Park Village Librarian Victoria Su-

mera who confessed, “as a first year librarian, without Ms. LaFoille’s help and guidance, I would have been extremely

overwhelmed.”

Also on hand was Mrs. Eddy Lou Peterson, a longtime coworker who work with Ms. LaFoille in the library for 11

years. She described when she first got to really know Ms. LaFoille who was mentoring students at the time. “Marty

Silverman, the principal at that time, asked her if she wanted to volunteer in the library because there were always lots

of books on the carts to be shelved. I think he knew I needed help.” (
