Volunteers transform school’s library/learning center


"You've got religion?"

"This is all history."

"Where do we want poetry?"

"I've got religion."

All the subjects are covered in the new learning center at St. Louis Catholic Academy, which became clear through the conversations volunteers had while moving bookcases and books into the space which will serve as the school library and more.

Big move at Rosati-Kain is more organized, less chaos

A three-story, $4.5 million addition and other improvements to Rosati-Kain High School in St. Louis is almost complete. Student volunteers Kate Kiser and Emily Powers spent their Saturday morning moving books from the old library.

With 80 volunteers gathered in the Rosati-Kain gymnasium for marching orders May 16, chief organizer Nancy Mueller described The Big Move as "organized chaos."

Indeed. Mueller had made plans for the group -- students, parents, teachers, staff, spouses and families -- to transfer the library (at least 6,000 titles) and chemistry lab from crammed quarters in Rosati-Kain's original 1920s building into the bright, airy space in the school's 12,000-square-foot addition.
