A week left of school before winter vacation and you can feel the excitement in the air.  Students and teachers are gearing up for the break! As the snow has finally made its way to MA it is really beginning to feel a lot like winter!!!

My philosophy for the library is to truly make it the community hub of the school. The library should be the center of our community where students can see themselves in the collection, feel safe and comfortable in the space and view what is going on around the school. With that in mind we have partnered with the Arts Department to turn the library into a gallery of sorts. Fine and Performing Arts Department Head Steve Miller had wall mount strips put in the library so we could display artwork from our students.  Art teachers have been great partners and student work such as self- portraits and wire creations have made their way to the library. You know it is a success when students are purposefully coming to the library because they heard their artwork was on display! It is another way for the library to collaborate with other departments in the school!

  1. I think that using the library space as a gallery space for student art work is awesome!!
