Built in 1886 and located on School Street, Central School began as a four room school building, although only two rooms were used at first. Residents were not pleased as they felt their taxes were being wasted, but the population steadily increased after Liberyville’s incorporation, filling the remaining classrooms. The second floor was used as the high school where classes first met in 1898.

Children don’t read ‘genres’; they read stories. Below a certain age, they don’t distinguish between ‘true’ and ‘not true,’ because they see no reason that a white rabbit shouldn’t possess a pocket watch, that whales shouldn’t talk, or that sentient beings shouldn’t live on other planets and travel in spaceships. Science-fiction tropes aren’t read as ‘science fiction’; they’re read as fiction. And fiction is read as reality. And sometimes reality lives under the bed and has very large teeth, and it’s no use pretending otherwise.
