Library Renovation

St. John the Baptist School in Howard recently completed a library renovation. The renovation focused on updating the space to maintain a classic look while prioritizing our Catholic identity. This space is now more flexible and usable by parish and school groups, which will allow more functionality and innovation in the future.

The library renovation was made possible by a donation of $30,000 from Dr. Jeremiah Farrell and his wife Jean. They made the gift in honor of his mother, Lulu. An additional $17,000 in funds was raised through matching gifts and fundraising efforts by the school’s Site Advisory Council.
