Transforming Our library into a Learning Commons
Library Mural Celebrates Reading
Mike Lowery, a local author/illustrator (and proud parent of a DHMS student), painted a mural of quotations about reading and learning on the library's back wall. See more of his work at https://mikelowery.com
Great news! Our Indigo Girls Library Benefit was a huge success. We raised over $50,000 from ticket sales, merchandise, and donations. We also received a Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $5,000. When combined with our previous fundraising, our total is $77,000 and we have purchased most of the new furniture in our library plan.
To see the original plan for our transformation, please view the presentation below.
New tables, shelves, cafe, comfortable seating, stools and paint!
Scenes from Indigo Girls Benefit
We began with an outdated high school library with 50-year-old furnishings. Our dream was to provide a welcoming space where our students and teachers could work together to solve problems and think deeply. Our newly transformed library is a hub of reading and creativity and innovative thinking.
