Bishop Kelly Library Newsletter

Library Grand Opening

The new library was officially opened on November 20, 2014 after almost 6 months of construction. With music, guests, and comments from school President Rich Raimondi, teacher Bobbie Shea, and donor Tom Cooney, Father Fraser spoke, blessed the new space, and we were open for business. Students and staff are beginning to use the amazing library that is now at the center of Bishop Kelly. The video below provides a snapshot of what the library was, how it was changed, and what it is now. Please come by and see first hand what the new Fraser Library is all about.
