Cairo-Durham and Questar III work together to improve libraries

Jane Bentley, Jen Cannell, Nancy Pine, and Bianca Rell

Cairo-Durham Central School District Librarian Nancy Pine received a helping hand from Questar III staff this summer to improve our library system. Jane Bentley, Union Catalog Librarian with Questar III, and Jen Cannell, School Library System Director with Questar III, assisted Nancy over the summer with getting our Cairo-Durham Elementary School ready for the start of school. Jane and Jen recently returned to our district to donate several books that they felt our students would enjoy.
