Longtime Arbuckle Elementary Librarian Remembered

Located at the top of the stairs in the Arbuckle Elementary Multipurpose Room, was the library.

Dozens of books filled shelves; with titles from ‘The Giving Tree’, to ‘Amelia Bedelia’.

Now a teachers lounge, one can still hear the tales of Strega Nona and her helper Anthony.

Julie Brincat was the school librarian. Starting her career in 1993, her passion for children, and for reading, influenced the children each week.

She would introduce a new book, a new character. She wouldn’t just recite the books, they were brought to life with creative voices, puppets and student volunteers. Brincat made no stop to make reading an enjoyable experience.

On Sunday, August 3, 2014, at the age of 70, and surrounded by her loving family, Brincat passed away.

She will always be remembered for her smile, and her love for children, and her love for telling stories. Brincat would take time with each child, making sure they found the perfect book.

She inspired countless of young children, and encouraged everyone to open a book and discover new things.

Brincat would also share tales of her life as a ballerina before she moved to Colusa County in 1986.

She was also an avid member of the Catholic Church where she taught catechism classes, and helped organize many events for the church. Brincat was instrumental to her community.

Brincat retired with the Pierce Unified School District in 2009. She moved to Oregon where her work continued with a local church, and volunteering at a local library.

She is predeceased in death by her husband.

She is survived by her three children, Victor Brincat, Julio Brincat, and Anna Brincat; her four grandchildren; and her one great-grandchild.

A private service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to: Arbuckle Elementary School, P.O. Box 100, Arbuckle, California 95912. Please write, “In Memory of Julie Brincat” in the memo line and the funds will be donated to the school library. ■
