This morning, 150 students, teachers and parents filled the Library's Dweck Auditorium for our annual Brooklyn Connections Recognition Ceremony and Celebration. On stage, outstanding students presented their final Brooklyn History projects and received certificates of achievement from the Library. In our lobby, students and their guests enjoyed a catered reception while viewing presentation boards and other materials representing the hard work of students from 10 middle schools across the borough.
Although the event has quickly come and gone (without a single leftover cookie in sight!), we are still celebrating the students' accomplishments here in the Brooklyn Collection with an exhibit highlighting their work.
Brooklyn Collection visitors will have the opportunity to learn a little more about our program and how we help students grow from special collection novices to experts on researching Brooklyn's history. The exhibit includes photographs, documents and excerpts from projects, as well as quotes from the students themselves. We are proud of all of our students' accomplishments this year and hope that you will stop by this summer to view their work. Their thoughts are truly inspiring.
And who knows?....Perhaps after visiting our exhibit, you'll be ready to take on your own Brooklyn research project this summer!
