First Person News: Brodhead library benefits from student's work
Photo supplied Brodhead High School senior Kyle LeVault burnishes a bookshelf end piece in the new Brodhead Public Library. As a class project in the school's woodworking class, LeVault refinished 36 of the oak panels, which the library had obtained when the University of Wisconsin Medical School relocated its library several years ago.
BRODHEAD - Among the first things visitors admire when they enter Brodhead's new public library building is the rich brown glow of the library's gleaming new bookshelves.But the handsome oak shelving units aren't new at all. They've been recycled and the end pieces, once scratched and battered, restored to pristine condition by Kyle LeVault, a skilled Brodhead High School pupil.
