Mr. Chapman Goes to Washington

By on

Danny Chapman of Lake Forest, Ill., is the proud winner of this year's National Library Legislative Day Student Theme Contest.

The contest, which ran in late 2006, invited students from all over the country to submit ideas for the National Library Legislative Day theme and logo to be used on invitations, briefing materials and decorations. For his winning entry, "Check Out the Future," Chapman won a free trip to National Library Legislative Day, which takes place May 1, 2007, in Washington, D.C. He will be visiting Congress with a delegation from the Illinois Library Association. Chapman shares his thoughts for that day with ILoveLibraries.org:

On Saturday, March 31, 2012, the Hughes Middle School Green Team and Green Lab Urban Farm held a spring Plant Sale to raise funds to keep a full-time school library at Hughes Middle School from 9am to 3pm. Due to severe budget cuts the library is currently scheduled for 50% closure.

The sale featured herb and vegetable plants of all varieties, including tomatoes, basils, lettuces, peppers, eggplants, chards, beans, squashes, cucumbers, and many more edible summer favorites! Shoppers were able to hand pick their own plants or purchase ready-to-go garden flats complete with a perfect selection of herbs, veggies, and annual flowers. Also on sale were many hearty “California Friendly” perennials that thrive in our local climate.
