There are many places of great literary significance, but that is often overlooked by today’s youth. luckily the library here at the high school is not overlooked by students but “used as a resource,” according to the librarian Patti Newton.

Though Newton is new to the district she grew up in Kaufman and graduated from KHS in 1987. She likes her new workplace, and the students and atmosphere that comes with the job.

The library has many things to provide students such as a place to finish class/home work, check out books, and make use of the computers, all of which are all available to students. Students may not be familiar with the library’s Gale databases, in which Newton says are “fantastic when doing research.”

So far, the library has been of use for computers and occasionally checking out a book or two. The bean bags, television, and quiet visitors provide an aspect of openness and comfort.

When asked about the draw and appeal to her job she said that she, “loves working with kids.” Newton says that she’s been working in education for 24 years and “still looks forward to seeing different students every day.”
