Baldwin High School will dedicate its new library Monday at a ceremony at 1 p.m. in the school auditorium.
The $8 million library is named after Wallace H. Fujii, a former Baldwin principal and an award-winning educator.
The new 14,250-square-foot library is an L-shaped building that consists of the main library and a media wing. The main library space contains the library collection, tables for group and individual work, a computer area, archive, librarian offices, teachers’ workroom and conference room. The media wing contains a computer lab and a video production room.
“It’s an opportunity to recognize and honor Mr. Fujii for his many years of commitment and service to our school,” acting principal Jacquelyn Davis said.
Fujii was Baldwin principal from 1979 to 2001. He was Hawaii Principal of the Year in 1995.
For those who are unable to attend the dedication ceremony, a community open house will be held on Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.
