Edgewood News - The place to find out what's going on at Edgewood School

Edgewood School

Scarsdale

Construction
by Phoebe Meizlik and Tessa Leroy

Edgewood School is getting a new library and new technology lab. The school is excited to have more space and no more construction. The new library and the tech space will be the "hub of the school," Dr. Houseknecht said. Mrs. Turner, the librarian, Mr. Tomizawa, and the rest of Edgewood will be able to do all kinds of things in the new workspace.

Mr. Tomizawa has always wanted to work near the librarian and now he can. "These days school librarians and technology teachers offer a lot of overlapping learning experiences for students. They do a lot together with researching, producing media and making things," said Mr. Tomizawa.

"There is also a new entrance to the school and library," Dr. Houseknecht said. "The library is going to have a higher ceiling than before."

When you looked outside at the old library, it was not brick like the rest of the school. It was made of concrete. We are now changing it to brick, so it looks like the rest of the school. In the new library, there will be spaces where you can work with a group or just read quietly.

Mrs. Turner says, "I would like a library that people can relax in and go around to help friends out."

We are trying to decide what chairs, shelves, and bookcases we should choose. The library will have bookcases with wheels on them. The library will also have low bookshelves so it will feel more like an open room. We hope to open the new library and technology lab in the upcoming spring.

Stayed tuned for more information!

This article helped me know what is happening at Edgewood School, and you all must be so excited about the new library. I wish I could see it under construction, but your article helped me imagine what is happening. I will see it when it's finished. I miss Edgewood so much, and I miss you all.
