Thanks Brownstone Book Fund!!

Shea High School Library has just received a gift of 100 new books!!!


     Shea High School was one of 100 libraries in the state of Rhode Island to receive a gift of 100 books. These books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City, interested in providing books for young people in the hopes of exciting and fostering an interest in and a love for books and reading. Sharyn Farley, the Shea librarian, was able to choose the book titles for the high school.  The 100 books chosen are hardcover, current, popular novels and graphic novels from our favorite authors! We are so very thankful to Diane Brownstone and the Brownstone Book Fund. These high demand books are now available for checkout - so visit the library and check them out!!
