When Patumahoe Primary School lead, Jade Tawhiti, mentioned the school librarians would like their space brightened up—they weren’t expecting their wish to be granted.
The community-minded staff at Franklin Law, got straight to work on revamping the library.
They supplied their in-house painters, the paint, (donated) as well as a considerable allotment of new books, with the entire team being very happy to extend their skills and contribution to this valued area of the school. There were great responses from students and teachers alike when they arrived at school on Monday morning to find their formerly beige library wall, now a brilliant blue—or ‘sea green’ as described by school bookworm and student librarian, Tom.
School librarians, Bronwyn Black and Kirstin Harris said they hoped the brightened space and new books would bring new luster to the school children’s library visits and were very grateful for Franklin Law’s contribution.
