Molly Lenaeu s and Marilyn Hughes pose with Miss Wright, the sponsor of the Junior Library Club, who is wearing clothes of “Amos Fortune,” the son of an African chieftain. The faculty at Andrew Lewis was royally entertained at a tea given by the Senior Library Club. Miss Goodwin, Mrs. Strickler, Mrs. Shriver, and Mrs. Sacra are being served by Sally Farmer while Mr. Broadwater looks on. Linda Swain, Jimmy Neal, Margaret Crosswhite, and Sally Farmer busily serve our teachers at the tea given by the Library Club. Your writers dream exciting dreams, of Martian wars and hydrogen bombs, and travels to the moon and stars. They sing in modern ways of deeds, that were but dreams, when I recounted. Your volumes hold so many tales. They tell of the flaming days long past, when knights were bold and strong. In those days, when peasants fought and won, and toppled the castles; they made men equal, that would not be so otherwise. There are the merry rogues of Shakespeare’s age, and the fainting “dears” of Grandma’s day. There are in every age and era, lovers and tales of love. Nor are these tales confined to books, by any means, but in this place, uncounted couples every day, bill and coo in furtive note, or silent whisper, and meaningful smile. For some, this is their only chance, to meet at length, o’er mighty tome, while getting reports, and research for class, or for pleasure, when work isn’t pressing. Your hall, with the light of learning, sparkling with sunshine and life, your books, unchained, worth a king’s ransom such wonders, thrill this ancient bard, as from afar I salute thee, Library of Andrew Lewis. Here, under the guidance of their teacher, Mrs. Chapman, an eighth gr ade class uses the reference room for study. Libby Winslow and Dickie Cornett look over the latest issue of their favorite magazines. Pat Peters and Shelby Conner, student librarians, decorate the board with an elephant and donkey to remind all civic and history students to vote in the mock election. i 9% ' - Bk.-a-. _- 1

A library club member’s life is far from being all work and no play. Here mem¬ bers of the club are preparing to leave for a tour of the Roanoke Public Library. line, might. In days long past I sang my ballads, and told the tales of noble deeds by bright and blazing fire at night, and later in the village lanes, I gave them to the common folk. The castles are reduced to dust, where once the rafters rang with jest and thick-lipped chant, and scarce two stones are left in where once the bastions stood in The village streets are modernized, my listeners’ ears forever numb, and all is fallen or forgotten, save my ballads and my tales. These are told in modern days, in forms and ways that I knew not, in the hall you call the library. That wondrous room in filled with life upon fantastic scores of pages. Your enchanting hall now holds the facts, that no one knew when I held sway. Students find the card catalogue very helpful in gathering information or find¬ ing a book. Joe Rice and Fred Repass have little difficulty finding books on the study of wild-life. Delores Willis selects a religious book from the display of new books featured for National Bible Week. The books placed on the exhibit table help students greatly in choosing good reading material. “Silence is golden” especially in the library where students are studying and getting special information with the help of Mrs. Newton.
