Celebrate Through Books!

The BEST thing about books is seeing life through the eyes of people who may not be like you. At Hersey, we celebrate the diversity of voices that make up the human experience. This is the last day of Black History Month. If you did not see the books we had on display, there is still time to check one out. Click on the images below to see the books we selected to celebrate not only Black History, but Disabilities Awareness Month and Women's History Month, too!

Rainbow and His Puppet Gang is Here!

Senior Warren Burdin has several sock puppets. Earlier in the year, he came to the ARC with an idea: make children's radio episodes featuring his puppets as a spin off of his short subject series "Puppet Films" made with his company, Tell-A-Camera Pictures Inc.  He ended up writing a script and recruiting some teachers to provide various voices --- and voilĂ !  Rainbow and His Puppet Gang .  Here is the first episode, featuring Rainbow and Zap.
