Term 3 was a lonely term in the Senior Library, however the silver lining of remote learning was that it gave library staff the opportunity to give the library a much-needed makeover and remodel. The vision was to make it an inviting space not only for students who would like a quiet place to study, but also for students to relax in a quiet corner with a book or gather with friends to play games at recess and lunch. The new layout of the library has increased study space, increased shelving space for books (yay!) and resources, and a cozy space for reading and games.
A special shoutout to Mary Goodrich from Maintenance who went above and beyond in lending her time during every step of the process. The library staff, Chris Tang and Alice Livermore, are very much looking forward to welcoming students back into the library when that can occur. It was lovely to see that Book Club continued strong on Zoom throughout the remote learning period, but we are very excited for both Book Club and Writing Club to resume face-to-face when extra-curricular activities can start up again.
