BOOK-LOVING children from a local primary school have been embracing their new up-to-date library.
Pupils at Wilberfoss Primary School have been getting stuck into hundreds of new fiction and non-fiction books available at the library since it re-opened earlier in the month. The three month project cost around £4,500 which the school paid for by holding fundraising events. They also received a £1,000 donation from Friends of Wilberfoss Primary School.
Headteacher Sue Monkman said: “The books that we had were a little bit shabby and quite a bit out of date.
“We believe books have a big part to play in children’s enjoyment and developing their opportunities.
“We asked children what they wanted to read and it’s had a big impact on their enthusiasm to use the library.
She added: “Richard Bruton, our ICT technician, put hours of work into the library.
It’s all credit to him that we managed to do it in three months.”
