Knights “Book It” for St. Thomas Aquinas School Library

FAIRFIELD—When the St. Thomas Aquinas School library needed an update, some people suggested to Librarian Adrienne Wilson that she appeal to the Knights of Columbus for help.

The Knights of Columbus, Father Coleman Council #2616, came to the rescue in big way recently by making a $10,000 donation to support an overall upgrade of the elementary school library.

“They were quick to see our need and give us the funding that we desired to bring our collection up to date,” says Wilson who is grateful for their generosity.

She said funds will be directed to a much needed update of the library including its computer systems and reference collections, as well as non-fiction collections in space and technology.

“Thank you, Knights of Columbus for believing in Catholic Education and for your generosity of spirit in supporting it,” said school librarian Adrienne Wilson..

When Wilson took over as librarian last year, she saw an immediate need to update and improve resources.

“There is no better thank you we can give than letting other people know that their local Knights are an amazing resource supporting Catholic Education,” says Wilson.

“Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for believing in Catholic Education and their generosity of spirit in supporting it,” she adds.

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is a fully accredited elementary/middle school with approximately 400 students in Pre-K – 8th grade, with two classrooms per grade. The school provides an environment rich in academic, spiritual and emotional learning.
