Take home one of our journals, read what others in our community have written or sketched, add your own thoughts and creative energy, then return for the next person to enjoy! Each journal has a theme. Some are serious, some fun, some are to write about your favorite books and genres. There is a topic for everyone!

In the 1950s students used lockboxes for lockers and traveled to classes with them.
