Historical information

Photo of former St Mary's College library established by the first Principal of the College - Mother Francis Frewin
The Collection was later amalgamated with the Newman College Collection to form the Academic Centre Newman/St Mary's.


This photo is significant because it shows what the former library of St Mary's College looked like. This is important for new students of the College and also for alumni who might want to reminisce about their time at the college and their days spent studying in the library.It also bears witness to the foresight of the Principal at the time who viewed the library as an important part of the College.
