West Central students go on an Amazing Library Race

students at West Central at Hartford

Freshmen students at West Central in Hartford are learning about the many great offerings at the school library. Students competed in an "Amazing Race" scavenger hunt based on the popular TV show. During this race, students explored databases, the new library webpage, and some cool technology tools. As part of the Amazing Library Race, students also participated in fun physical and mental challenges. Librarians Beth Prostrollo and DaNann Kistler were hosts for the Amazing Library Race and reported that their students loved it and had great fun.
