A Community Lending Library box has been installed at the school gates of Kennet Valley C of E VA Primary School so that the whole school community and local residents can use it
People can come to the Lending Library box to choose a new book to read but can also leave a book that they have read, so that others can read it too.
Emma Russell, Headteacher, said, “This lovely little library was designed and made by Liam Makepeace, who lives in Calne. He saw an appeal that we had made on Facebook and put this together for us, donating it to the school for free! We are so grateful for his kindness and generosity. As well as making the box, Mr Makepeace also delivered and installed it for the school, while his daughters’ collected books and toys to include in it.”
The school’s Reading Leader, Mrs Byford, commented, “We are really pleased to have this in our school for people to use. We are passionate about reading at the school, not just about our children learning to read, but about helping children to develop a love of reading. We hope that our parents and children will love using it and that village residents will also pop in to borrow or leave a book. Thank you to Mr Makepeace for all his hard work to give us this great gift.”
The school have asked that if you would like to borrow or leave a book in the Library try to visit outside of school hours or when the children are not in the playground.
