Over and out!
It’s the end of Mission Bookworm and at Team McGinley we are excited to finally be able to reveal all of our hard work over the last 10 days.
That’s right, Mission Bookworm is the renovation of a local school library (we know the codename wasn’t that good after all!)
McGinley is proud to have supported Park Street C of E Primary and Nursery School in the full renovation of their library.
Working together, volunteers from Team McGinley, our contractor and school staff have created a vibrant and exciting new learning environment for the entire school with a specialised “tech area” to encourage STEM learning.
With only a few hours to go our reading buddies and other soft furnishings are arriving on site to complete Mission Bookworm.
Check out a sneak peek of them below and make sure you check back later today for the big reveal.
The time has come! Today is our tenth and final day on Mission Bookworm. It has been fantastic to see Team McGinley volunteers working with our contractor to transform our top secret location for our local community and we can't wait to show off the final results.
Make sure you check back later today for the big reveal
It may be raining outside but we need our sunglasses on site of Mission Bookworm. After much debate on site from "Super Sander" and "Agent Graphics" all the custom fixtures and fittings have been painted Blue Venetian Crystal. Looking good Team McGinley. Not long to go now!

“We had a fantastic day at Mission Bookworm. Isabella and Oscar have loved working on site and getting their hands dirty supporting this project.
