When you think of Mrs. Fig’s Bookwork, you automatically think of Connie Halpern! She has an amazing way of interacting with everyone she meets. Connie always made you feel welcomed whenever you enter her store. This is very apparent because she knows your name and always has a smile on her face, She is always so helpful and knowledgable when recommending books to her patrons.
Connie has not only been an outstanding member of the Camarillo Community, but to our very own Mesa Community as well! In the past four years, Connie has volunteered her time, selling books from her bookstore during our Back to School Nigh. In addition, she gives a percentage of the sale back to our library. Connie has also been a Guest Reader at our annual Read Across America Celebration. She always makes an effort to be here and always requests to read to the students in Mrs. Torres’ Special Day Class. She has also personally delivered books to our library when she’s in the area. Connie Halpern has been an invaluable source to our school, to our library, to our community and is truly deserving of this Mesa Moments!
