Every September the library raises awareness about literature censorship by partnering with the American Library Association's Banned Books Week - an annual weekly homage to learn where and what books are being suppressed worldwide and by whom.
Have you read any books that have been banned or removed from the library? The library can help you find out!
Also, check out the World Language Department & DEI Office Latinx Heritage Month exhibit (pictured above), which showcases Latinx figures of inspiration to Buckley staff, faculty, administration, and students.
The library is also gearing up to showcase our own security officer Franz Gill's sports memorabilia collection as well, Gill Cards & Beyond, which should be completed soon. Check out some signed football helmets, baseballs, cards, and some Buckley surprise signatures!
Buckley cleaned up at the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards this semester! Please join us in congratulating the following student writers and artists who collectively won dozens of awards this year for works that, according to Scholastic, express “originality, skill, and/or the emergence of personal voice or vision.”
Instead of taking a final, the Upper School Tipping Points class stepped outside of the classroom to plant a generational indigenous garden – different from a simply native garden in that it mimics the planting practices of indigenous people, approaching the earth with care and respect.
With the help of everyone from the community, we’ve received more than 900 donations to the annual Toy Drive! Before we headed into winter break, students from the Lower and Upper School Student Council delivered the items to the Foster Children’s Resource Center.
