Richard Ford, a Pulitzer Prize winning author

Mr. Ford's visit is courtesy of our Writers In The Schools program and its tie-in with Seattle Arts & Lectures, so we are very lucky to have this guy! 
Richard is best known for his novels The Sportswriter and Independence Day.

SPEAK UP and make the Shorecrest library quiet.

Ever visited the UW library?
Or how about the Shoreline library?
It’s quiet. 
Patrons study, silently use the library’s resources or have short conversations in low tones.

Ever experience this?
I go to the library to study quietly and come in contact with people who are talking. I mean talking not even whispering. It is very frustrating because I get sidetracked very easy.

Help make the Shorecrest library a place where students expect quiet and minimal distractions. (Especially during TAP Intervention.)

Click the comments link and give us your suggestions on how to provide a quiet zone for studying. If your suggestion is appropriate — your name will be entered in a drawing for a FREE print card.
