video still shotThe library Prom Closet is getting ready for another season of glitz and glamour, and our own Elise Sheppard, teen librarian, was interviewed about it last Friday by Channel 13’s Patricia Lopez.  The Prom Closet provides dresses to teens who are unable to buy a dress or for those on a tight budget. And really, aren't we all on a budget these days?  The dresses are free and for the girls to keep. The interview will air in March just before prom season. Last year’s interview helped double the number of recipients!

Thunder Soul Promotional Material used with permission of copyright holderA young band director at a rough inner city school, through hard work and inspirational leadership, transforms a run-of-the-mill jazz ensemble into a force-of-nature funk band that storms through all comers at national competitions. Thirty-five years later, the students return to pay tribute to the teacher and mentor who changed their lives.
