Each year the Massachusetts School Library Association selects
students from across the Commonwealth for contributions to celebrate the
value of school library programs in the state.This year, William Goldman from Essex Elementary School was awarded a
special recognition in a ceremony at the Grand Staircase in the State House for his design of a bookmark.
After a tour of the State House and lunch, William, his
family and Susan Hardy, school librarian from Essex Elementary, were my guests
in the Senate Chamber.
Congratulations to William and to all students and families
that join me in celebrating our wonderful school libraries and librarians.
