FHS Students say goodbye to library this week


Last week it was the gymnasium.

This week, students at Fayetteville High School will say goodbye to the library which will soon be demolished as part of the current school renovation project.

“Over the years many students and teachers have discovered that the library was more than just a place to check out books,” said FHS librarian Cassandra Barnett. “It’s been a refuge, a place to explore new ideas, to experience great programming, meet with friends and much more. We hope that former students and teachers will drop by and share their memories of what the FHS Library has meant to them.”

FHS officials will hold a FHS Library: Messages of Remembrance event on Friday, March 2 for students and staff to drop in and leave a message of remembrance on the library’s walls. The public is invited to visit from 4-6 p.m.

The library will move to a temporary home in the “great big room” in the basement of FHS before ultimately relocating to its space in the new high school.
