Students at the Coleman A. Young Elementary School in Detroit will return to school this fall with a new library as winners of the “School Makeover” contest presented by a partnership between the Detroit Pistons and Farm Bureau Insurance.
More than 60 schools from across the state of Michigan entered the School Makeover contest. Elementary and middle schools submitted at least four images of their school’s library or gymnasium to be considered in the selection process. The newly renovated library at the Young school on Detroit’s west side will be unveiled during a special ribbon-cutting ceremony in September.
