Library News

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kathleen (Katie) Wikoff and I am the new school librarian here at St. Andrew’s.  I am very excited to be a part of the St. Andrew’s faculty and to work with all the students in teaching and learning library and research skills and fostering a love of reading!  

First a huge THANK YOU to Mrs. Felker for all her hard work in the library and for all her help to me during this transition. We miss you Mrs. Felker!  

I have been a librarian for about 20 years and received my Masters in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I also received my BA from SUNY Stony Brook in American History and French Language and Literature. I have worked in many different types of libraries – public, academic, government agency and corporate libraries – most recently as a librarian and researcher for 13 years with IBM.  I then took some courses in school library media at Rutgers University and am very excited to bring that experience here to St. Andrew’s!  

Just to tell you a little bit about myself… My family and I have lived in Yardley and have been members of St. Andrew’s Parish for the past 6 years.  We have two children – Richard, 9 and Elizabeth, 6, who is in Mrs. Duffner’s 1st grade class here at St. Andrew’s.  You may also recognize me and my husband Rich if you attend 10:30 Mass, as we are both members of the St. Andrew’s Choir.

Thank you to the students, faculty, staff and parents for your warm welcome to St. Andrew’s and remember to READ, READ, READ!!
