Middle School's Joyce Lynch Named "Super Librarian"

Middle School of Plainville Library Information Teacher Joyce Lynch has been named a "Super Librarian" by author Tim Green. Nutmeg nominated author and former NFL Atlanta Falcon Tim Green visited the Middle School of Plainville earlier this year, marking his second trip to MSP. During his visit in October, which was funded in part by the Elizabeth Norton Trust Fund, he spoke to middle school students about the importance of kindness and acceptance of other's differences, focusing on the importance of hard work, determination, perseverance, and most importantly, education.
Green also maintains a Facebook page, where he recently selected ten librarians from across the United States and designated them as "Super Librarians" for their contributions to literacy and positive youth development. Lynch was selected as one of the ten librarians to receive the recognition by Green. As part of the designation, MSP's library received five copies of Green's newly published book, Home Run, which were distributed via raffle to middle school students Dante Chambrello, Rachel Gomme, Caitlin Charest, Lex Roberts, and Sarah Marinelli.

"I've always known we've had a Super Librarian!” said Middle School of Plainville Principal, Matthew Guarino.

"Joyce's contributions to our middle school community go far beyond the walls of our library. Her 'Super Librarian' designation is well deserved," noted Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Maureen Brummett.
