“The school library provides information and ideas that are fundamental to functioning successfully in today’s information and knowledge-based society. The school library equips students with lifelong learning skills and develops the imagination, enabling them to live as responsible citizens ” (International Federation of Library Association’s (IFLA) Manifesto, 2008). The presence of modern, functioning libraries at Kingston College is therefore critical to the academic advancement and competitive advantage of each student enrolled at this prestigious institution.
I am sure you are aware of the important role technology plays in education and development today. It is the generosity of donors like yourself that will enable us to provide the youngsters of our beloved alma mater with this lacking but very key infrastructure which is necessary if we are to continue to compete and remain the preeminent institution of choice for talented and ambitious youngsters today and into the future.
Your donation will enable us to provide a much needed state of the art library and technology resource centers. Plus, the completed Douglas Forrest Building for Kingston College. We are in the home stretch of the campaign as we had to reschedule plans to break ground this summer of 2016.
