Library is a Connection to the Community

This week the library was honored to receive donations from a former student. Bruce D'Agostino '65,  donated a collection of his personal military books to the library. A retired Air Force photographer, Mr. D'Agostino has worked with and met many prominent figures in military history. He has graciously shared some of his collection with the library in the hopes it will connect with the younger generation and educate them on the roles individual and the country has played in military history. He has also offered to speak to classes on his experiences. It was an honor to meet Mr. D'Agostino and spend time hearing his stories.

Mr. Cuoco's philosophy class is working on their ethics
project. In groups, they will form an opinion on an ethical debate and create a project to report back on to their peers. Working with Mr. Cuoco, we pulled a collection of books that work directly with this project as well as teach students how to navigate and search the Opposing Viewpoints Database. This database provides articles on a tremendous amount of topics and will give a pro and con side written by an expert in the field. Coupled with the books, students are able to gather strong research to back up their opinion on the topic of choice.

Look who's here!! One of our favorite former students stopped by the library for a visit!!! Kaiyah Goldsmith '14 home from college for the long weekend, she made a point of coming by and hanging out with us just like she used to for four years while at Natick High!!! We miss her!!
