New Furniture Makes a Difference
Capitol students and staff are so excited that they have new furniture in their libraries. Last year the LISD School Board granted money to update the libraries, and Capitol purchased some special seating for students to enjoy reading in the library. This year Librarian, Mrs. Pam Alexander saved money to purchase new work tables and chairs in vibrant colors.
These new tables and chairs really pep up the library and make it a great place to be. Modern libraries require furniture that enables collaboration, have great work surfaces, and make students want to be in the library. Thanks, Mrs. Alexander for making your library a fantastic place to learn!
