Mrs. Noelle Price (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays)
Welcome! I am one of the two new school librarians to join the Centennial family this year. This is my fourth year in Orland School District 135 as a library media specialist. I will be split between Park and Centennial schools this year. I am in my seventh year as a school librarian. I have also worked as a children's and youth services librarian in public libraries. I have a B.S. in history-social sciences education from Illinois State University and a Masters in Library and Information Sciences from Dominican University. I enjoy cooking and traveling! I will be the library media specialist at Centennial School on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, please feel free to contact me any day with questions or concerns. You can find my contact information below. I look forward to meeting all the students and families!
