Sligo Grammar School Parents Association recently presented a cheque for €1,500 to the school library. This money was raised from fundraising drives run by both groups. It follows on the heels of a special presentation by all Hallows College of a set of Biographical Dictionaries. The dictionaries were presented to the school library in December by Michelle Cashmann on behalf of All Hallows College which closed its doors for the last time in November 2016.
Our library, in the capable hands of Mrs Rita Shannon, is a wonderful resource for the students and teachers. The library is home, not only to a fantastic collection of books, magazines and daily and weekly newspapers, but also to the Chess Club and the Lunchtime Debates. In January it was the base for the Ocean FM broadcast from SGS.
Assisted by a team of TY students, Mrs Shannon keeps the books up-to-date and in good condition and every student in the Grammar School has a free library ticket assigned to them – they need only call up and collect it.
The Library is open every lunchtime and all students are welcome to use it. Many students find it a calm and peaceful retreat from the noise and action of the locker areas.
Mrs Shannon and her team put together displays that reflect what is current such as displays dealing with the Centenary of World War I and Valentines Day The Library Christmas Tree made of books is now almost a tradition in the Grammar School.
