Earith Primary School near Huntingdon welcomed a literary transformation on Monday morning as it unveiled its brand-new library facilities, just in time for the upcoming World Book Day celebrations.

The transformation was the vision of Headteacher Mr. Thomas Abbs and English Lead Mrs. Sarah Matthews, supported by the school's librarians who are eight enthusiastic Year 5 and 6 pupils. A vast array of new books now adorns the shelves, accompanied by a fresh display to make the library enjoyable and accessible to all.

The redesign incorporates clean white walls, designed to reduce sensory overload and foster a focus on the books, as well as front-facing shelving and regular rotation of titles to maintain a vibrant atmosphere.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was led by Lynsey Holzer, CEO of The Active Learning Trust, who unveiled the space to pupils who were eager to explore the revamped area.

The new library initiative is part of Earith Primary School's ongoing commitment to promoting a culture of reading. Each classroom is named after a renowned author, a popular weekly book club and a regular "Reading Blog" further encourages an interest in books. The school also operates a scheme selling off old books at bargain prices to maintain the children's enthusiasm for reading.

As the school, which is part of The Active Learning Trust, gears up for a week of literary celebration, including dressing up for World Book Day and hosting a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, Mrs. Matthews expressed her enthusiasm, saying, "Reading is at the heart of everything we do at Earith Primary School, so we are thrilled with our new library, which will be a fantastic resource for all our pupils now and in the future."

Lynsey Holzer commended the hard work of the librarians and students, saying, "It was a pleasure to officially open this lovely library today and to meet the librarians who really showed their passion for reading and their dedication to encourage others to read more. Well done to everyone at Earith."

With the unveiling of its new library, Earith Primary School promises a bright future to its pupils, filled with literary adventures!
