Duval County Public Schools spend millions to renovate Lee High School’s library, then they don’t use it.
I received the following from a former librarian at Lee high school.
The main building at Lee (the historic building) was renovated and reopened in February 2013. It included a beautiful new media center. The media center is now being used for a classroom. No one is staffing it--not even a clerk. It is closed. Imagine a brand new media center closed!
Here is the Times Union story about the renovation. http://jacksonville.com/community/riverside/2010-07-01/story/overcrowded-lee-high-school-ready-renovation-expansion
Kids can’t check out books, do research, I don’t even know if they can stay after school to study any longer but we also wasted a lot of money setting up a brand new media center.
