Peggy Karaffa

Library Technician
Peggy shares her love of reading with students and helps them discover that there is a book for everyone.

Why do you enjoy most about working in the Mollie Dodd Anderson Library?

I love everything about the library. I love the feel of a book in my hand, and I want to share my enthusiasm for reading with the students. I also love a challenge, so when a student comes in and says they don’t like to read, I work extra hard to prove to the student that there is a book for everyone.

What do you think is special about George School?

George School is a unique place where one can learn and experience life without being judged. The students all have very high expectations for themselves, and it is such a pleasure to see them through their journey.

What novel would you recommend students add to their recreational reading list and why?

I would recommend The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater. This story shows how a poor decision impacted the lives of many and that love and compassion can still be found in the world today.
