It was through the generosity of the Alloway family in 1994, and as a lasting legacy to Norma’s faith and joy, that our library was able to undertake a major automation and enhancement of its holdings – this was a tremendous contribution to our learning community.
The construction of the Campanile and the Library Gardens are a beautiful and loving capstone to that contribution, reflecting the ongoing generosity of the Alloway family and their desire to enhance and enrich the lives of students, faculty and all who find joy in God’s beautiful creation.
