Eager Young Reader Makes Impression on Library Staff

Barron2 optFive-year-old Barron Russell got his first library card at the Collierville Burch Library over the Christmas holidays, and he was very excited.Barron2 opt
When asked what kind of books he likes best, Barron said he liked alphabet and phonics books, and the Arthur and D.W. series by Marc Brown. It was a book called D.W.’s Library Card that gave Barron the idea to get a card for himself. Barron’s mother, Emily Russell said he told her he only needed to know how to write his name to get a library card.

“And he said that he could write his whole name!” said Russell.

When Barron was asked why he wanted his own library card, he said “So I can check out any book I want!”
Collierville Burch Library Director Deanna Britton said that 62 readers in the 5 and under group got library cards in 2016. What made Barron Russell so special?

“He was just so excited to get his card,” said Britton, “He made a huge impression on the staff.”
