Photo detail

Katie Sanchez’s dedication manifests itself during Tykes and Toddlers Story Time every Thursday. Parents and children participate in reading, singing, and the total tactile experience of books. Here she coaxes Hyah and her mom, Juanita Kirgis, to feel the book and watch the lion’s mouth open and close.

A passion to teach

Some people find their passion early in life. Lucky people also find the outlet for their passion, whether writing prose, flying planes or working at a library, organizing, formatting and involving young people in reading programs. Katie Sanchez’s intense involvement with the programs sponsored by the Payson Public Library shines through when leading parents and children or teens in activities. A creative writing class for teens, the Reading Corner, a scrapbooking experience, all contain some element of Katie’s commitment.
