Pistons unveil renovated library at Detroit high school

The Detroit News

Current and former Detroit Pistons players helped students celebrate a makeover of the library at a Detroit high school Monday.

Pistons center Aron Baynes and former Pistons player Earl Cureton were among volunteers from the NBA team and Farm Bureau Insurance who renovated the library during an eight-week face-lift at Detroit Collegiate Preparatory High School at Northwestern.

The project included new paint, furniture, flooring, technology and Pistons graphics and decorations. Detroit Collegiate Prep was chosen from among more than 30 Michigan schools for the library makeover in a contest.

Students talked with Baynes and Cureton, posed for photos with them and received Pistons backpacks filled with school supplies.

The Detroit Collegiate Prep library is the 32nd facility renovated in Michigan by the Pistons as part of the NBA’s Live, Learn and Play program at schools, shelters and hospitals.
