    A Lasting Gift
    At the conclusion of your visit you are invited to visit the library with your grandson/s to purchase and donate books to the Preparatory School. Library staff have curated a catalogue of carefully selected titles that support the curriculum and the reading interests of the boys in the Preparatory School. If you wish to, you are able to place an order via the catalogue link.

    Your donation will be acknowledged with a name plate placed on the inside front cover of the book when it is delivered to the College (instructions for name plates at the checkout screen). If a copy becomes out of print or unavailable for any reason after it has been ordered we will do our best to select a book with a similar subject and cost. The Book Giving Catalogue is on the PAC website and will be available after 12 April: Orders close 4pm Monday 13 May.
