Library fire – 27 March 2017

On Monday morning, 27 March 2017 the Atwell College Library and Resource Centre was extensively damaged by a suspicious fire.  Library staff are devastated at the damage caused, and the impact this will have on students who regularly used our library collection and facilities. Damage has been estimated at more than one million dollars.  We would like to thank all members of the community who have offered support to help us rebuild our library.  We also thank all the students who were concerned for library staff and told us how much the library means to them.

Work has already began on rebuilding the library, which is estimated to take six months.
