Welcome back to St. Matthias School!
My name is Mrs. Paola Perez. I am excited to be working as the school’s librarian. My goal for this year is to help each student develop a love of reading.

“To read a book for the first time is to make an acquaintance of a new friend;

to read it a second time is to meet an old one”.
