The new Watha T. Daniel-Shaw Library, located at 7th and Rhode Island Avenue, NW, opens this summer. The new Shaw library will feature a large photo mural depicting 300 faces of the Shaw community. If you would like your face to be included in the mural, please come to the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Interim Library, Monday, May 17, from 4-5:30 pm.
If you've ever witnessed a "bridezilla" giving a verbal smack-down to her cowering fiancé on a wedding reality TV show, then you know that weddings and the women who plan them have gotten a bad rap lately.
The other day I took a photo of the front entrance of the new Watha T. Daniel building. Shortly after I took that picture I went to the construction page to see the drawings of the building and how it compared to the reality of the building. I was totally shocked to see how completely similar they were to each other, and I think you will be as well. Check out this side by side photo and drawing array and get a feeling for the new Watha T. Daniel Library.
Over the last year we've had the wonderful opportunity to work in partnership with some of the brilliant students at Seaton Elementary School. One of the most amazing projects that we did was build a local history page on Wikipedia for the Shiloh Baptist Church. After the students built the page we had them sit down for a Skype teleconference to talk about their experience on the project with teachers around the country.
by Joe HillWilliam Morrow, (c) 2010Recently I had the misfortune of being terribly sick, laid up in bed and feeling awful. That said, I was incredibly lucky that I had, mere days before, checked out Joe Hill's latest novel Horns. Had I not been in bed for an entire day I would have not had the luxury of reading the entirety of this book in one sitting, and I would have had to steal every spare moment here and there to dive back into the book and find out what happened next.
