Members from the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Community Service Division and Target Brands, Inc. will be putting the finishing touches on the revitalized library at Thomas Stone Elementary School today. Target works in partnership with The Heart of America Foundation to create fun and inviting spaces for students to read, learn and grow that feature environmentally sustainable materials, new technology and thousands of new books.

Students will experience learning in an environment filled with vibrant paint, murals, and paintings by nationally known artists. The library has been equipped with new furniture and restocked with over 1,000 high-quality library books.
