PPHS library gets an update

Last spring the Paw Paw High School Library was awarded a $3,000 Toolbox for Education Grant from Lowe's. The money has been used to paint, replace furniture, and create a makerspace. The space is being used for various classes around the school for group work and reading time. The new furniture design aids in group activity space and has modernized the layout. The space is now open and user-friendly. (Photo contributed)
