The students at No. 36 are making use of the library’s new resources before school, during lunch, and in the afternoons after school. Teachers at the school are also utilizing the new books in class lessons.

The library is open to all community members after school and is helping to promote literacy for entire families. Thank you to everyone who donated to the book drive!
