Happy School Library Month!

Every year the American Association of School Librarians declares the month of April as school library month. This year's theme is "School Libraries Transform Learning". We would like to take this time to express how proud we are to help transform learning at LHS. As a librarian there is no greater feeling than seeing the look on a student's face when they find that "just right" book or piece of information to support their research. In honor of this celebration we would like to thank our students for seeking our advice and teachers for collaborating with us to help make that transformation happen.
