HAMPSTEAD — The Hampstead Middle School Library has been selected as the 2021 New Hampshire School Library Media Association’s Outstanding School Library Program. The award recognizes an exemplary NH library media program and services. The library program must play a strong role in teaching and learning, promote a positive learning environment, and be led by a well-qualified staff with strong administrative support.
The Hampstead Middle School Library was described as “a vibrant and collaborative part of the school that supports students, staff, and the community. The Librarian, Diane Connors, is known for being “excited about what she does and is always happy to share her knowledge and love of learning.” The library program staff is “always making changes, improvements, adding programs, and thinking outside the box.”
The Outstanding Library Program winners were recognized at the NH Excellence in Education Awards Ceremony on June 5.
