West 7th Library showcases students’ art on migration

By Brianna Trinidad Sprung, Library Manager
At St. Paul Public Library, we welcome all people to connect, learn, participate and grow. I would like to personally welcome community members to West 7th Library to enjoy a unique display we have at the library right now.  
We are hosting a unique collection of stories created by 3rd and 4th graders at St. Paul School of Northern Lights.   
In December, elementary school teacher Magda Thulson of St. Paul School of Northern Lights reached out with a project her students did about migration. The study of Monarch butterflies led to a connection with Carolina Ortiz, a local DACA recipient born in Zacatecas, Mexico. Carolina visited with Magda’s class and the students were able to hear her story firsthand.
Afterwards, the students interpreted her words in their individual voices and compiled them into a collection of stories and images that is currently on display at West 7th Library. We welcome you to stop in and visit the display. You can also scan a QR code to listen to the students talk about their project.   
 Thank you to teacher Magda Thulson for connecting with library staff member Kerri to share her students’ work with the community at the library.
