In which we chair-ish the arts

We are big chair-leaders for the arts over in the library, and since we're also all about fun-iture, we are hoping to give our armchairs a facelift this year!  One of our retired pages gave us the inspiration when she pointed out that our chairs could use a little TLC a few years ago (Olive, I'm going to see about getting an armchair designed in your honor!). We've enlisted the ArtLab classes to design some super snazzy and jazzy slipcovers for our fleet of armchairs.  To read more about...

Happy May the 4th!

Today we are celebrating scifi, science, movie magic, and general appreciation of all things nerdy at Dana Hall, and we're embracing it whole hog (taun taun?) in the Library!

Stop by today all day for crafts, facts about the movies and the science behind Star Wars, a selfie booth, Lego creations, etc.

Embrace your inner nerds, Dana - the force is strong with you! #maythefourthbewithyoudana

Take a tour of the library!

Welcome back, Dana Hall students and faculty!  We've missed you this summer, and hope you enjoyed both some rest and relaxation (and also some summer reading...I mean ice cream).  In case you're new to Dana Hall, or have missed the library so terribly that you want to virtually be here all the time, some of our recently graduated and super talented student pages made a gorgeous video about the Helen Temple Cooke Library for you.  Thanks, Helen L.'15 and all her...

Summer reading: what do the Library Pages recommend?

In anticipation of the best day of the year, aka the Summer Reading Book Fair (on Tuesday!), we asked some of our fabulous library pages what books they recommend from the 2015 Summer Reading List.  This is what they said!

Helen L., Class of 2015, read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and insists that she "could not put the book down!". She also proclaimed that Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner and Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott were among her...

Welcome to the dollhouse!

If you haven't been in the library this week, you may want to swing by and check out the newest addition, a really, really cool dollhouse, donated by the family of Dorothy (Johnson) Henry, class of 1948.

We'll share some more pictures and details in the weeks to come so stay tuned, or swing by to take a look!


Window to your thoughts: what are you thankful for, Dana Hall?

What are you thankful for, Dana Hall (besides hand turkeys and window markers?)
What are you thankful for, Dana Hall (besides hand turkeys and window markers?)

Feeling a little creative and also thankful in the waning days leading up to exams and before we stuff bellies with turkey and then curl up with some good books and DVDs from the library?  Swing by and help us decorate our windows with your thoughts (and most gorgeous hand turkey).
