Library Monitors: Who are they anyway?

The new header on the blog was a photo taken last week in the library for the yearbook. The photograph club came to take photos of our library monitors.

Can you guess who they are?

I know they are dedicated students who help out in the library before and after school with shelving, decorating, displays and more.

Thanks to all of you!
