On behalf of the McIninch Library Media Center and Manchester Central High School, we would like to thank the Baraniak family of Manchester, New Hampshire, for their kind donation of 151 hardcover books and 153 paperback books.


The Baraniak family have Central roots that run deep.   Eleanor Baraniak and her daughter, Kristin O’Brien, were beloved members of the English department for many years. In addition, Kristin and her siblings graduated from Central.  


The Baraniak’s kind donation of over 300 fiction, biography, memoir, and non-fiction books will keep the memory of Eleanor Baraniak alive at Central and in the hearts of those who taught with her.  Many of the books complement the curriculum and the donation truly enhances our collection for the Central community to enjoy.


Again, we thank the Baraniak family for the very generous donation.
