Thanks to funding that was supplied through coin drives at the district's five elementary schools, high school tech club students were able to use tools on hand, and their own creativity to construct book nooks that will be placed at or near playgrounds at Como Park, Court Street, Hillview, and John A. Sciole elementaries as well as William Street School.
Under the guidance of technology teachers, Mr. Phillip Streit and Mr. Samuel Castanza, tech club students used all the software, machines, and tools at their disposal, including a 3-D printer, to add creative elements to each uniquely designed nook. For example, the smart phone themed nook incorporates solar panels and LED lighting to illuminate the 'home screen' at night.
Library media specialist, Mrs. Jacqueline Donaldson spearheaded the fundraising effort which included not only the coin drives but also a grant from the Lancaster Youth Bureau.
