Northwood Arts & Sciences Academy reopens library after three years

Now, grasping large purple library cards, students such as second-grader Brandyn Hickingbottom and his classmates eagerly browse the stacks, choose books and check them out.

Having the kids scan their library cards and book barcodes helps them connect with the library, Petruzzi said.

"It gives them ownership," she said. "This is their library."


Reading programs

Petruzzi said she keeps lists of books that students request, and has started a donation box to collect money to buy them. She has also started programs to make the library's services more diverse.

A morning art club, for example, meets at 8 a.m. Then, students look through drawing books waiting on the art table.
