We were really pleased to hear that local children cared so much about The Old Library so we visited Year 4 to share our plans for the future with them. After explaining why Andrew Carnegie originally commissioned the building, we asked the children how they felt looking at photographs of the building now, compared to how it used to look:
When we saw the library now it was really broken and in the old photos it looked grand.
I feel devastated about the building, it used to be a lovely place. We all feel annoyed. You need to respect Andrew Carnegie’s work.
We had a great morning with Year 4 and are looking forward to seeing them again as the project moves on. If you know a local school or youth group who would like us to learn more about the project, please get in touch (Olivia.email@example.com) – we’d love to get you involved!
