Pupils at Thorndon Primary School are enjoying their new library which was opened this month.
The official opening took place during an evening of book activities, book sales and second-hand book stalls, and the start of the Half-Term Sponsored Read, attended by parents and children.
The library is housed on a newly-built mezzanine floor in the old Victorian school building, allowing easy access to shelves for children of all ages, as well as a comfortable and quiet reading area below.
The mezzanine makes use of the building’s double-height space and has been constructed in solid wood by a local craftsman.
Headteacher Tamsin Little said: “I’m really pleased to have been able to buy new books.
“The work and help with funding would not have been possible without contributions from Thorndon Leek Club, Friends of Thorndon School, Thorndon Town Trust and support from parents.”
