It was a day of celebration in Riverhead Tuesday as members of the Riverhead Central School District and the board of education gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the entrance to the new library and media center at the high school.

"The high school's library is brand new and is befitting students who are learning in the computer age," said Superintendent Nancy Carney. "The room is now a modern and beautiful environment where our students can conduct research with up-to-date technology, work on projects in small group settings, or read and work independently in comfortable spaces." 

In addition, the tables are now in place in the large group instruction room and it will be ready for use in the near future.

Construction of the new additions at the high school is also underway and there are plans to break ground at the middle school over the summer, school officials said. In addition, plans have been submitted to the state for the work to be done at Roanoke and Pulaski Elementary Schools this fall.

Riverhead residents approved a $78.3 million capital improvements bond in 2011 that will upgrade infrastructure at all the school's buildings, and rejected an additional $7 million bond to fund a gymnasium.
