Books returned to unit shelves
Tirau Primary School is gearing up to reveal its multipurpose library unit.
Construction on the library’s upgrade, which included a digital editing suite, an extended deck and double the floor space, began last year.
‘‘We are just putting the final touches on the building now, the books went back into the library yesterday and we are aiming for an opening tied in with a grandparents’ and community day in week four, around the February 28,’’ principal Hamish Fenemore said.
The cost of the multipurpose unit was estimated at $160,000.
Mr Fenemor added the upgrade will meet the needs of the school’s increasing roll.
‘‘We want to have a space where we can fit our whole school,’’ he said.
