Ingrid Parent, University Librarian, provided a brief history of the branch as part of the Library’s on-going centennial celebrations. “The Education Library, of course, is an essential part of the Library’s history, although in its earliest days it was referred to as the Curriculum Laboratory,” said Parent. The collection was housed in the Main Library before moving to its current location, the Neville Scarfe building in 1962.

Head librarian Chris Ball spoke about the improvements to the space and offered a thank you to all the staff who helped with the renovations over the past few months. 

Stay tuned for more news on the Library’s centennial activities for the rest of the year.
