The library has always been a special place for Brenda Chase. She's always been a book person and says, "Books were my lifeline as a kid." Four years ago, she was considering a job as a children's librarian for the La Mesa-Spring Valley school district, so she stopped into the Casa de Oro branch to speak with the staff there and find out more about working as a librarian. She says "they were so helpful" in sharing information with her. She has now been a librarian working with kids in the school district for four years.
