ACC’s New LibraryOn Wednesday, December 12th the Anglican Cathedral College officially inaugurated its new library. The library, which features Internet-ready computer stations, an Audio Visual component with overhead projector, WiFi access, a study area and book shelves, came at a cost of 54 thousand dollars.

ACC's school principal, Ismael Requena told the Guardian that he has been at the high school for the past 20 years, 9 of which he has been the principal, and since that time, there has been no real library at the school. He explained that there were areas designated as library areas but they were not true to the word. The newly equipped and designed area now does fit the billing and Requena says the school is truly appreciative of the Charitable Trust's contribution. He said that the library will serve the student and the community as a whole well. He added that while the school has some books to fill the shelves, there is capacity for additional books and the school is accepting contributions.

The library was built in 8 weeks at a cost of 54 thousand dollars and included the repair of the ceiling, tiling of the floor, installing bookshelves, and repairs to windows and doors and the installation of air conditioning units. The library will serve 550 students from ACC.
