Pupils get first glimpse at Horton Grange Primary School’s new library
Children got a first sight of their new school library as it was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Bradford.
The school has raised £150,000 for the library over the past two years, and it contains more than 4,500 new books.
Previously the school’s books were spread out over a number of smaller libraries located in classrooms.
Headteacher Carol Stevenson said: “We feel it has been a really worthwhile investment for the children.
“Everyone is absolutely delighted with it. There is an ICT area for children to research, and there will be a reading club before and after school and for pupils to go to at lunch.
“The children were very excited, It is on a mezzanine floor that was closed off until yesterday, so the opening was the first time most of them had to see it.”
