“I love the new library’s colour scheme. It’s super-calming and really makes you feel fresh and wanting to study! The cool greens and natural colours really make it feel energising. The open spaces are so useful to study in your own nook.”
Rebekah (Year 12)
 “St Columba’s Library is more than a library, it’s a whole different place. The screen with the fire place makes it feel warm and cosy. The space makes it feel free to learn.”
Janeca (Year 7)
"The library is amazing, I want to live my life in there."
