A SCHOOL’S library is going from strength to strength – thanks to the local community.

Since opening its doors to members of the public in 2007, the library in The Blyth School Community College’s Open Learning Centre (OLC), has seen a major rise in the number of visitors.

The space has also since played host to a number of functions, including coffee mornings, and heritage and fundraising events, which has helped members of the community be part of school life.

OLC staff ensure there is a wide variety of books covering all genres, as well as regular public library stock.

The well used junior library is also encouraging young children and toddlers to read.

Many regular users visit the library all year round, including during school hours, and Ted and Doris Wright, who have recently moved to Blyth, pop in every week.

Ted said: “We have always been avid library users and we were delighted when we moved to the area to find that we had such a well stocked library on the doorstep.”
