The Reporter: Love of books makes Vacaville school librarian’s job a joy

By Richard Bammer/

Hers is a 30-by-30-foot book-lined space, filled with nine round tables and blue chairs, but, for the young students who visit, it is a safe universe of fun, dreams, knowledge, hope and possibilities.

Vacaville Unified library tech Christine Zavaglia on Friday welcomed a class of Padan Elementary fifth-graders into the small library, the students filing in, selecting books, checking them out at her desk, speaking with her briefly and quietly, and returning to their room. It was just one of some eight to 10 classes which typically visit the library on any given day. (She works at Padan Elementary on Wednesdays and Fridays and job-shares with Karen Hiemke.)
