In addition to celebrating our common bond as Saints, the auction also allows the School to provide important facilities enhancements for our boys. This year, your donations will touch every boy on campus-the money raised tonight will fund upgrades to the libraries in all three divisions.
The divisional libraries play an important role in the boys' academic experience. Librarians collaborate with faculty to develop creative projects and opportunities for students that enhance and complement classroom learning. The libraries are a hub of information for the boys, providing access to authentic and accurate academic resources. The libraries are also a place of community-building, where students gather, learn, and explore together.
It has been many years since the library facilities were renovated, and the current furnishings and resources are insufficient for the needs of our boys today. With your help, the Lower, Middle and Upper School libraries of the future will be state-of-the-art learning centers-comfortable and inviting spaces for our boys to study, do homework, collaborate and foster a lifelong love of learning.
We thank you for your support of this event and our fundraising efforts.
