In Memory of Bruce Dahmen

"The librarians play an important part in student success by supporting the curriculum, bridging the gaps in access to and familiarity with resources, and working collaboratively with teachers to support and improve their instruction. I support our school library program because it is central to student achievement." - Bruce Dahmen, Principal, James Madison Memorial High School, Madison
