What's Going on in the Library Spring 2017?

4th grade students interview members of the Swampscott Senior Center!

4th graders used Library/Tech time to write interview questions, practice interview skills, video-taping strategies, and still photography in preparation for a visit from Swampscott Senior Citizens. The following video, compiled by Mrs. Morgan, brings all of the pieces together. The background music was used with permission from Music Together LLC. “The Lovesong of Kangding” traditional Chinese (Sichuan) folk song, arranged and adapted by Kenneth K. Guilmartin. ©2005 Music Together LLC (ASCAP). Used by permission.
