Local History Class Visit to North Elementary School
In May our Youth History Librarian, Adele Bennett, visited the fourth grades at North Elementary School. She made a local history presentation about the historical landmarks in Brentwood. Adele brings the local history quilt and enlarged photographs to show the children during her program. The program is interactive giving the kids a chance to ask about the historical landmarks in their town. One of the highlights the kids enjoy is hearing Adele ring the original school bell. This bell was used at the Octagon Schoolhouse and is part of the Local History Department's collection.
