IB Hub Grand Opening!
We are pleased to announce the opening of our new IB Hub, an integrated learning center where students gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, invent, network, and build. The entire St. Mary’s Community is invited to the IB Hub Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting on May 12, 2016, from 8:00 to 9:00 am.
Libraries are vital, integral hubs, the heartbeat of an IB learning community, now more than ever. It’s time to say goodbye to the rigid stacks and make way for a modern library that serves our students’ needs today and in the future.
Already an important destination on campus, the IB Hub serves students from age 2 to Grade 8. From the entrance to “The Living Room”, the new Library provides heightened flexibility. The new spaces supports students’ learning and study needs by allowing them to interact with rich media content and leading technological tools.
Students will have access to:
- A technology-rich, dynamic learning environment
- “The Living Room” for readers of all ages
- The “Think Tank” for collaboration and tinkering
- New enclosed classroom space
- Storytime area
- Flexible and interactive spaces

The construction of the new IB Hub integrates the latest in energy efficiency with motion-detecting LED lighting, upgraded ductwork and insulation and smart receptacles.
