Reading Nook

Thanks to a very generous donation from alumnus Mark Mobius, class of 1954, we were able to purchase items for our first ever reading nook. The new comfy chairs and end tables were a big hit here at Mepham on the first day of school. We had been looking for ways to create separate, yet cohesive spaces in the library to accommodate all of our patrons. Students had been asking for "soft seating." We wanted to design a space that was inviting and would foster communication and collaboration. Looks like we accomplished that goal! The chairs and tables can be moved around to create many different configurations depending on the needs of our students and teachers.

Thank you so much Mr. Mobius for helping to make our vision a reality. Alumnus, Lance Blackshaw serves as an ongoing liaison between the alumni and our school, making these special projects come to life. Mepham's class of 1954 continues to be a prominent source of funding for our school library.

Our mission is to promote an environment that is warm and welcoming for everyone. The school library is the hub of our school community and serves many functions. Students come here to learn, create, read, interact, socialize, and so much more. We will continue to provide them with unique opportunities and resources with the help of our alumni and community partners.
