New Library Books

Last fall, our librarian applied for a grant through the University of Wisconsin Madison Institute for Regional and International Studies National Resource Center. She was pleased to learn this summer that GD Jones had been chosen to receive the grant which includes over $1,000 of new books for the library. These books center on themes of migration, human rights, and climate amongst other topics. These books will be available to all students after the beginning of the school year. If you would like to learn more or check out some of these new books please contact Ms. Harty at tharty@wausauschools.org. Happy reading!
