Over the last few years the Westford Academy Library has undergone a physical transformation. Print resources were shifted to the periphery to open new spaces to allow students to collaborate more easily.
Westford Academy partnered with Challenge Success, a program at Stanford University that helps schools learn and implement stress management skills as well as focus on student wellness. In the library we looked for fun, relaxing, and engaging ways for students and staff to take a break. We found these large coloring murals that students can work on together and when the mural was done we displayed it for all to enjoy! Another relaxing and stress relieving activity is a large sticker mosaic. Students and staff have enjoyed stopping and sticking a few pieces to work together to complete the mural.
