Cramlington teenagers visited their local library last week were given a preview of new titles they chose.
Pupils from Cramlington Learning Village took part in a scheme after Northumberland County Council allocated money for the pupils to spend on books for the town’s library.
Northumberland county councillor Val Tyler, policy board member responsible for community infrastructure and culture, said: “We want to involve teenage readers as much as possible so that the books in our libraries are books that they enjoy and can help with their studies.
“The idea of letting them choose books for their peers has been extremely successful.”
Eileen Armstrong, school librarian at Cramlington Learning Village, said: “Our pupils had fantastic fun picking a selection of books for the library.”
