Library Letters

Some High School Students are required to read and quiz on books every six weeks as part of English class, so it is very exciting when they freely express how much they enjoyed the assignment! A passage was recently shared, and in return, it will be passed on.


"Changing the world is good for those who want their names in books. But being happy, that is for those who write their names in the lives of others as the treasure most dear."


Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card pg. 354

Student Reader: Mikayla Skrahak in Coach Brosch's 2nd period class
