NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - After months of fundraising and construction, New Rochelle schools officials finally welcomed students into the recently refurbished library at Ward Elementary.

This week, Schools Superintendent Brian Osborne and Ward Principal Franco Miele officially opened the doors to the new library, after raising thousands of dollars during the annual PTA-led “Read-a-thon” this year.

Students, teachers and administrators were on hand Monday for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting, where Osborne and Miele offered a tour of the new-look library, which was funded by more than 1,000 elementary school students who read nearly 1.5 million minutes this year, raising nearly $44,000.
