Library launch and blessing

On the evening of the PFA Barn Dance, I had an opportunity to talk with the school community about the redevelopment of the School Library on behalf of the group who’ve been working on the project over the last year.

 

Many thanks to Paul Richardson, Megan Millar-Coote (BOT Chair), Megan La Hood, Elizabeth Helm, Moira Gallagher, Maxine Ramsay (National Library Services to Schools), the School Fair committee and people behind other fundraising opportunities that have (or will) benefit the library. Many others have provided support through donations and sharing of ideas. Thank you for your dedication to the redevelopment of the school library, this is a whole community project that will benefit everyone, especially our children.

If you were unable to attend the talk, the presentation is available below. We’re really keen to hear your ideas and receive your recommendations for books / materials for the library. We still have a lot to do and it’s going to continue to be an evolving process. If you have ideas you’d like to share, please get in touch. [Sarah Gallagher]

Blessing

We were very fortunate to have Fr. Aidan join us for the presentation, and to bless the library. Fr. Aidan read three blessings from “A Book of Blessings” by Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (p120-1, 163). You can hear him reading a blessing of the books in this video.
