“They [students] really like them,” library assistant Laurie Kochis said. “It’s so colorful and fun. When we take them down, it’s like when you take all the furniture out of a room, and you’re ready to paint.”

Nagel said that when visitors come during the week to view the quilts, they often comment on how students are polite or on how hard they are working. “I always get compliments about the kids,” Nagel said.

“It just works out on a whole lot of levels,” she said.
