Staff Feature: Ms. Cluster Helps Students Check Out Books

Lexi Chisari, Staff Writer

Ms. Elizabeth Cluster is the library assistant at Crofton High School. Students can find her at the front desk when they check out and return books.

Ms. Cluster comes from Rolling Knolls Elementary, Cape St. Claire Elementary, and also a small preschool. She attended North County Highschool and the University of Maine in Augusta, and she said she wanted to work here to pursue a career in librarianship and library science and to help students navigate a new school year.

She said she loves working in the library because of her love of books, which started with the popular series Harry Potter by J.K Rowling. She also wants to help students find reliable and trustworthy information for projects. 

Sophomore Betsy Leveron said that a library is an important place. “I like that it is pretty quiet and there’s a good amount of books,” said Leveron. “I like the lady who checks out the books, she’s pretty nice.”

Freshman Kennedy Davey said that she enjoys the library. “ It’s easy to find everything,” she said. She added that Ms. Cluster is helpful. “One time I had to return my book and I had absolutely no clue what to do and she helped me. She walked me through it.” 

Ms. Cluster wanted students to know that there are many books they can check out from the school library either in person or through the online catalog through classlink. A few book recommendations from Ms. Cluster are Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare, Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson, and The 100 by Kass Morgan.

The library is open during red and black blocks.
