Storefront Library nurtures another library in the neighborhood

Quincy School DonationStorefront Library staff coordinated and delivered a donation of 350 high quality classic fiction titles to the Quincy Upper School, a Boston Public School on Arlington Street that serves grades 6 – 12. The books had been carefully selected from high school reading lists by a donor who asked for our help in getting these books into the hands of local high school students.

Storefront Library staff sought out Peter Chan, a chemistry teacher at the Quincy Upper School, (photo above) who is spearheading an effort to create a library for the school’s students. (They have a room which long ago served as a library, but it is not yet operational.) Peter accepted the books on behalf of the Quincy School. We are considering other ways that the Storefront Library can help the Quincy Upper School Library get up and running.

Stay tuned for more news about how the Storefront Library will be collaborating with the Quincy School in the months ahead.
