A Glynn Academy Fix-Up School Library Gets Special Treatment


Stepzinski, Teresa, The Florida Times Union


BRUNSWICK -- Past and present Glynn Academy students are working

together to ensure future generations at the high school are

well-read and have a comfortable, fun place to hang out between

classes.

The 20-member Student Advisory Board has initiated an

enhancement and beautification project for the 20,000-book

want to install new carpet, repaint the walls, add plants, and

add furnishings such as rocking chairs, sofas, beanbag or other

big chairs and rugs.

Other possible decorations could include murals or displays of

student artwork, Vakili said.

"We took on this project because we wanted to help encourage

state," Vakili said. …
