After reading through around 50 entries, a committee consisting of Board Secretary Diane Olsen, Executive Director Susan Dove Lempke, Youth Services Librarian Mikey Orzechowski, Head of Public Relations and Marketing Sasha Vasilic, and Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator Robin Komie unanimously chose Nelson School 5th Grader Prisha Modi as the second-ever Library President for a Day Contest Winner.
“When I borrow books, music, and movies I learn something new and it’s because the library provides all these amazing facilities and it helps me learn many different things,” stated Prisha in her submission.
The contest was open to students in grades K-8. Students had to fill out a form explaining in 5-10 sentences why they should be Library President for a Day. Many students in schools located in the Library District such as Culver, Apollo, Gemini, and others participated.
Perks of Being Library President for a Day:
- Be recognized at the November Board Trustees Meeting
- Receive a Key to the Library
- Pick out favorite books, movies, and music for a display in his/her honor

Hello everyone my name is Prisha you should choose me to be library president because my favorite thing to do is read and I have a lot of knowledge about the library. When I borrow books, music, and movies I learn something new and it’s because the library provides all these amazing facilities and it helps me learn many different things. When I read the books, they help me express my thoughts, I can identify what is happening ever since I have started reading. I have done many things in the library, for example reading patch club, battle of the books we won, 3d printing, reading with rover, and lots of other programs. There are many different types of devices to help you can use the computers,3d printer, a copier, and a printer but there are more devices to help you learn, play and have a good time. It’s like the library is my and the books home my sister and I have learned many things. We are so lucky to have such an amazing library with awesome librarians helping us so much and helping us find books and do programs. That’s why you should choose me for library president for the day.
