Take it as read, Tivoli school loves its library
IT WAS years overdue, but Tivoli State School finally opened its new $1 million library this month.
The entire school population put on a show of poetry and singing for dignitaries including Member for Blair Shayne Neumann and local councillor Heather Morrow, during an official opening for the library on Tuesday, November 13.
Few were happier with the Federal Government investment in the school than librarian Julie Langlands, who said she'd had a fair degree of input into the set-up of the new facility.
"It has got almost everything I wanted," she said. "I did not think in my wildest dreams that I would have facilities like this to work with - it is a huge improvement on what the school had before."
Principal Jan Barton said building had been delayed because of concerns about undermining. As a result it was built on a different site within the grounds.
"This is a day a lot of us thought would not eventuate," she said.
The new library includes a computer study area and height-adjustable desks to cater for students of all ages.
Mr Neumann said he could see the sense of pride that the library had evoked in Tivoli's students.
