Library News

March and April have been quite exciting as far as the library move. Over Spring Break, computer tables, chairs, and Swoop seating were moved into the space. After Spring Break, Service High Tech, along with some fabulous Service ROTC students, a couple of Mr. Cronk's Applied Tech students, and one delightful library student aide began unboxing and placing the 140 computers and cables. Work continues on with the hardware, and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the library bookshelves, for the final push in the move!
