Stone Bridge High School Library

The library is open 8:15 til 4:45 Monday through Thursday and 8:15 til 4:45 on Fridays.

Our librarians are Mrs. Farzin and Mrs. Donahue. Mrs. Silvernail is our library assistant.

So when we made progress with our “update the library” plans a few years ago, we wrote an article that was published in School Library Journal about how we did it. Our student volunteer board, we called them TAG for Library Teen Advisory Group, did so much work to give our space the teen-focused makeover we needed. After the article appeared, we were interviewed by Diane Tuccillo, who was updating her book on the subject of teen advisory groups in public and school libraries. We just got the copy of her book and she features our school in several places.

Thanks again to our SCA, our PTSO and the Loudoun Education Foundation. Your grants and support helped us do that important work! Thanks also do everyone who donated items and participated in our fundraisers.

Here are a few “action” shots of the book. 😄

Our World History students worked hard on displays for an exhibit to bring awareness to the horrors of genocide and human rights protection. Come to SBHS for Genocide Awareness Night tomorrow evening for a speaker presentation and to view the exhibit.

To mark the beginning of Holocaust Remembrance Week, we're sharing the incredible story of Ingeborg Rapoport, who became the world's oldest person to receive a doctorate degree -- nearly 80 years after she was denied her PhD at the University of Hamburg for "racial reasons" due to her Jewish heritage. Two years ago, the then 102-year-old Rapoport at long last had the opportunity to defend her doctoral thesis on diphtheria before an academic committee, 77 years after she completed it. After she aced her oral exam, her PhD was approved and she was awarded her degree at a special ceremony in Hamburg.

Rapoport was 25 years old when she submitted her thesis on diphtheria, an infectious disease that was a leading cause of death among children at the time. Her professor praised her work but, as Rapoport told The Wall Street Journal, "I was told I wasn’t permitted to take the oral examination." Although she was raised as a Protestant, Rapoport's mother was Jewish which, according to the Nazis, made her “a first-degree crossbreed” and ineligible for academic advancement. “My medical existence was turned to rubble,” she recalled. “It was a shame for science and a shame for Germany."

That year, she emigrated penniless to the US where she did several internships at hospitals and eventually received her M.D. from the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania. After working for several years in the US and starting a family, she returned to Europe and founded the first neonatology clinic in Germany at Berlin’s Charité Hospital. Reflecting on her journey, she said, "I have never felt bitterness. I’ve been shockingly lucky in all this. For me it all came out well: I had my best teachers in the U.S., I found my husband, I had my children.” But, over time, she began to wonder about the possibility of receiving her long-denied degree.

A Hamburg colleague of her son learned about her story and presented her case to the current dean of the medical school, Dr. Uwe Koch-Gromus. Koch-Gromus was determined that Rapoport should complete her degree -- and that she should earn it, not be granted an honorary Ph.D., even though the university’s legal department said that was the simplest solution. Koch-Gromus arranged for Rapoport to do an oral examination on diphtheria, the subject of her original paper, and she began studying up on the past 70 years of diphtheria research. After her exam, Koch-Gromus said, “Frau Rapoport has gathered notable knowledge about what’s happened since then. Particularly given her age, she was brilliant.”

Rapoport, who passed away last month at the age of 104, was thrilled to receive her degree and pleased that the university amended this injustice at long last. Koch-Gramus, she said, “has made a great effort to show that things are now different in Germany.” Most importantly to Rapoport, however, was the chance to remember those who lost their lives many years ago: "I am happy and proud, but this is not about me. This is in commemoration of those who did not make it this far."

To introduce children and teens to this challenging chapter of history, we featured the best books for children and teens about girls and women who lived during the Holocaust period in our blog post, "40 Mighty Girl Books About The Holocaust" at

Among the recommendations are a number of excellent books about girls and women who, like Dr. Rapoport, were forced to flee during WWII, including "The Butterfly" for ages 5 to 8 (, "The Whispering Town" for ages 6 to 9 (, "When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit" for ages 8 to 12 (, and "In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer" for ages 14 and up (

For books for young readers about Mighty Girls and the refugee experience -- both historically and in modern times -- visit our blog post, "Seeking Safety in a New Land: 15 Books About Mighty Girl Refugees," at

And, for two excellent picture books about Mighty Girls who learn about the power of perseverance - both for ages 4 to 8 - check out "The Most Magnificent Thing" ( and "Rosie Revere, Engineer" (
