GHS students Library Day in Collaboration with Drake Community Library:

The first annual Loud in the Library day was a great success. For one day only, high school students could get loud playing board games and doing crafts, puzzles, and challenges. Drake Library Youth Services Coordinator, and GHS Alum, Grace Morrison were also here, handing out snacks and talking to students about the Drake library summer reading program. Students who completed the free reading challenge, logging at least 500 minutes of independent reading since January, got to bring a friend to a pizza party in the library at lunch.
