Mercy McAuley Receives Gift to Fund Air Conditioning in Library

Mercy McAuley High School is pleased to announce it will be adding air conditioning to its library, a heavily utilized space throughout the school year, thanks to a generous gift made to the school.  This gift to Mercy McAuley was made in memory of Lynn Driehaus, Mother of Mercy Class of 1978 and a lifelong supporter of the school. The project will begin during the 2019 summer.

“We are extremely grateful for this generous gift to our school, which will make our heavily used library even more appealing to our students, employees and friends,” says Patty Ragio, President of Mercy McAuley High School. “Our library is a marquee space in our building and is utilized often as a student study and research space. It is also a comfortable space often used for student and employee gatherings, special events, and celebrations throughout the school year. The addition of air conditioning to the library will help us increase student and employee satisfaction and will allow us to maximize the use of our library even more for years to come.”

Mercy McAuley also plans to add more “Maker Space” equipment in its library, which will enhance the school’s offerings in experiential learning and creativity.
