Hi! My name is Patty Donovan and I am your librarian! I love being a teacher and have worked inDistrict 11 for 22 years; first as a high school English teacher then as K-12 librarian. I have been at Midland for 5 years. I am an adventure seeker and love to go places I have never been before! Often, that means I go to the library to find books to read! I have always loved reading and want you to love reading too! I have been very lucky to be able to travel to England, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Guatemala and Canada. I graduated from high school in 1979, finished college in 1983 and went back again in 2008 so I could become a teacher-librarian! I have three kids that are grown up and a husband that makes me laugh every day!This summer, I became a grandma for the 1st time! I love helping people and children are so much more fun than teenagers! I hope you will come to our library as often as you can so I can get to know everyone in our beautiful Midland community.
