Library area gets a facelift
Youngsters at Castle Douglas Primary are enjoying their new-look library.
Murals, new books and a seating area are among the changes to the refurbished space.
Last year the school was given Scottish Government funding through the Pupil Equity Fund which they put towards literacy development.
Pupils were keen to improve the library area and some of the funding was put towards making it more appealing and accessible.
Reading ambassadors from each class in primary four to seven carried out a survey of pupils’ reading habits with an overwhelming majority feeling the space wasn’t appealing or comfortable enough.
Staff in school worked with the children to design the new library area and paint a number of murals based on children’s stories such as the Gruffalo and The Cat in the Hat.
The school has refreshed many of the library books and now has a wide and current selection of genres, catering for a range of reading interests and abilities.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed watching the new library develop and are very excited to read their favourite books in their newly refurbished space.
