The USD 405 libraries are anything but quiet and sedate. SHHHHH is rarely heard.

Central school’s library has had a facelift as well. Two of the massive walls have been painted a teal blue that brightens the room. Above the reading steps a mural is in-progress courtesy of Leah Bowers, Lyons high school Art teacher and alumni. Jan Lent, media aide, is inventorying collection and weeding out as well as making a list of new books.

At the High school, middle school library Uno and Chess tournaments are played and observed. Teachers and staff sit and discuss changes that are taking place with Gemini II. Coffee and fruit smoothies are served up by Stu-Co representatives in the mornings in a new business venture.
Melody Adams, head media aide, has made the library the “place to be” in the past few years. Changing things up in the media room all the time, keeping staff and students alike coming in to check out activities, new critters, and of course, books. Last, but by far least, books.

New books, old books, blue books, banned books, all adorn the shelves. Students ask for recommendations and are generally surprised that the book handed to them is a great book. Some students are even finding that reading can be fun rather than a forced activity.
