A first school in south east Northumberland is celebrating after the official opening a new library by nominated pupils from each class.
After fundraising and assistance from the school’s parents and friends’ association, and a church toy sale to supplement the school budget, Holywell Village First School has opened its new facility.
The library was officially opened by two children from each class, who had been nominated for the special honour by their peers.
Story-teller Don White, local author Christine Kenworthy and Marvel illustrator Paul Davidson, were also present at the opening to share their love of books and reading with the children.
The new library includes a scanning system for pupils to check out and monitor their own books, as well as a small group work area to allow them to enjoy group reading.
“For a small village school this is very exciting for us and something we are very proud of, said Emma Reed from the school.
“We are looking forward to the children utilising it every day,”
