New School Library

The pupils at Shebbear Community School returned from the recent lockdown to discover the school library had been completely refurbished. Improvements to the existing library area had already been planned with the initial work taking place over the Christmas holidays. We thought that the project would need to be completed over half term or Easter, but with the lockdown and far fewer children in school, we were able to complete it in time for the rest of the school returning.

The project saw the removal of benching that was in place from the time the room was used as an ICT suite. A new entrance was put in along with more shelving for books and a new study areas for children to work in small groups. The space had been really opened up and was now a lovely place for children to read, choose new books or take part in group activities. It was a real team effort to get the works completed. The Hookway family kindly undertook the initial works free of charge, while staff and governors constructed the bookcases and painted the walls. Our PTA gave us money towards the project along with donations from Councillors Andrew Saywell and Barry Parsons in addition to one from the Balsdon Trust.

Hopefully we will enjoy using it it for many years to come and help everyone develop a love of reading.

The library went from this …..

to this!
