VIDEO: Sheep Dip Lane Primary re-kindles interest in library

Waiting for Video...

A primary school library has turned over a new leaf and has made a huge leap into the 21st century.

The newly refurbished facility at Sheep Dip Lane Primary in Dunscroft was officially opened by civic mayor Coun Eddie Dobbs on Monday.

The library is not just about hard and softback books but accessing literature via the internet, and there are 4,000 online books for children to choose from.

One of the benefits of the new technology is that pupils can read books at school, bookmark them via the internet and then continue reading on their laptops at home.

A spokesman said: “The ‘I-Lounge’ also has Kindle stations, different places, called ‘pods’ to sit and read and it looks fantastic.”

Pictured at the opening are pupils with headteacher Faye Parish, poet James Nash and director of design services for learning spaces Sam Stevens.

Seen in the video are Year 4 youngsters Steven Grayson, Lewis Freebury, Daniel Mason and Isabelle Parish, Year 3’s Taylor Marsh and Luke Marsh from Year 6.
