  • Shining Library Book Report

    Shining Library Book Me and classmates were told that we had to do something nice for the school. It wasn’t just our grade, it was the whole middle school who had to something.

  • Butler Library Mural Analysis

    Butler Library, the largest of Columbia University’s libraries, greets its visitors with a centered mural that embodies the importance of the building it resides in.
