In April, 1975, the new Library and canteen were officially opened in the College quadrangle. This was a significant step in the development of the school’s facilities. The blessing was jointly done by the Rector Fr Kevin Davine OMI and the local priests. The cost of the building was $118,000 with the Federal Government providing $35,000 in support. The architect was Mr Barry Bjorlsten of Stella and Sons and the builders were A.J. Richardson and Sons. The Senior Librarian at the time of the opening was Mrs Christine King.
