Eagle Junction State School Memorial Library & WindowPrint Page Print this page

The Memorial Library & Window commemorates those who served in World War Two. 

The library, erected as a suitable memorial, was designed by architect Mr R Ashley Shaw. Two classrooms in the original school were remodelled for its construction. A stained glass memorial window was included and was made by Leadlights Pty Ltd.  Mr Justice Mansfield officially opened the library on 21 May 1949.

The beautiful stained glass window, measuring 6 ft. 3 in. by 3 ft., will soon be erected in the Eagle Junction State School Memorial Library as a tribute to past students who served in both World Wars. Designed by Mr. R. Myles, of Leadlights Pty. Ltd., it contains approximately 1,500 separate pieces of glass.
