Library makes welcome comeback
10:00am Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Letters
Sir – It is not often that I get angry, and I mean enraged, about school libraries.
I was pleased to be invited to the opening of the new library at Carterton Community College.
It was only then that I was informed that a previous management team had shut it down. If I had known about it at the time, I would have done my utmost to stop such short-sighted madness.
I was too late and thousands of books have been lost for ever.
However, a brave new world has risen like a phoenix from the ashes.
Carterton Community College has won the School Library Design Award 2013 (last week’s Gazette).
Congratulations to school librarian Rosemary Stables, the present leadership team and all those benefactors who helped raise funds to re-equip this invaluable resource for generations to enjoy again.
Mike Steward, Alvescot Road, Carterton
