The Library offers students a window into other cultures, countries and worlds and a safe place from which to research and explore them. With books and reading for pleasure at its heart, students enjoy a well-stocked library with exciting books and a professional librarian whose role extends to the classroom to teach them to understand, value and evaluate what they read.
A benefactor gift from TGS alumna Victoria Hislop, is the gift that keeps on giving. This year the Library has been refurbished thanks to her gift and with Enrichment Fund savings. Victoria has also committed to a generous budget for more reading books. Originally for 3 years, the funds have stretched for nearer 5 years. We now need to find those willing to take on the baton of this important part of the library.
An open afternoon last November enabled parents and donors to visit and spend time in the library. We thanked our donors and our student librarians, including Meredith who so dearly loved the library.
"I love the Library because it has a wide range of books in all genres, which means that there is something for everyone to read. It is also a great place to read and work because of the calm atmosphere. We also have a great librarian who is always willing to help recommend great books!"
