Library looking for 75 6th and 7th grade students

   To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Howard County Library the Library is looking for 75 students to be "guardians" for the Library for the next 25 years.  Here is the information from the Library:

Howard County Library System (HCLS) is seeking sixth and seventh grade Howard County students who are willing to carry on the HCLS legacy as Guardians of the Chapters-of-Our-Lives Time Capsule.
guardian-pageOn Saturday, October 24, HCLS’ 75th Diamond Anniversary year concludes with Celebrate 75! This community-wide celebration will be held at the Miller Branch from 10 am to 2 pm.
Festivities will begin with an opening ceremony unveiling the HCLS Chapters-of-Our-Lives Time Capsule. Filled with a treasure trove of items representative of HCLS and the year 2015, this Time Capsule is a collection of three containers, all part of a 75-year plan.
To help champion this ambitious undertaking, HCLS is looking for 75 sixth and seventh grade students who will pledge to be Guardians of the first chapter of HCLS’ legacy for the next 25 years.

    • Provide written answers to three questions to be placed in the Time Capsule
    • Agree to take the Chapters of Our Lives pledge (see application)
