MCL and MANSD book donations

posted Oct 14, 2021, 3:08 PM by Central Library   [ updated Oct 14, 2021, 3:11 PM ]

We just wanted to say thank you to the Manchester City Library (MCL) for choosing  the 15 new books that were donated to our McIninch Library at Central High School.  These books are great selections for CHS students and will definitely compliment our collection.  We love "To Kill a Mockingbird" as a graphic novel and the other graphic novels that were included.  The books MCL selected in the genres of multicultural fiction and teen non-fiction will also be great, high-interest additions.  

Another big thank you to Ms. Amy Allen, Assistant Superintendent of the Manchester School District (MANSD), who was the driving force behind getting these books for Central.

Thank you to everyone for thinking of our students!

Lunches in Manchester School District

From the Manchester School District...

School meals are free for everyone this year, however we still need families to complete the application for free and reduced meals. If you believe you may qualify, you can apply online right now. Just go to and click “Get Started.” 

The application is available in multiple languages – you can select a different language at the top of the page.

If meals are free for everyone, why would you need to fill out the application? District funding for important educational services is tied to the percentage of students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals. This means that not filling out the application now will hurt our schools in the near future. This means loss of funding for teachers, important school programs and critical technology. In addition, students that qualify can get benefits including waivers for college application fees and discounted AP exams. 

The application is about more than just meals – it’s about making sure the students who need the support the most continue to receive it. Please take a moment and complete the application today at

Thank you!
