Our library is tired - we need a new one. We have the space but not the resources. Please help us.

by Coombe Hill Inafnts' School PTA in Kingston Upon Thames, England, United Kingdom

Our current library is situated to the side of the main corridor, by the toilets, it can be noisy due to the hand dryers and flush. The children do not have the ability to sit and choose at leisure as there simply isn't enough space. Only a few children are able to use the library at the same time. Our current library is tired and dull, it is not encouraging our children to love books. Reading is a key basic skill to develop. We hope to develop a library which inspires our children to adore literature, a space they feel happy and secure in, to sit and read a book, and reduce children's screen time. We would like to create a warm, well stocked and inviting space, encouraging our children's curiosity and allowing them to choose books and be transported wherever their minds take them. We are extremely fortunate to have a vacant classroom, which we aim to remodel as a library. To achieve this we need to repaint, re carpet, purchase new furniture and seating. We will retire old, tired, out dated books, and stock the library with fresh literature. Once established, we hope to be able to open the library to our families and encourage parents to bring siblings along and read lots of different stories. This will be a beautiful experience where our families can spend time together. We hope to purchase a library system which will allow families to borrow books, and develop our popular Friday morning share a book with your family sessions.

Let's make 'Mission Library - we need your help' happen
