FAIRFIELD Primary School have opened their new library, with the help of children's author Dan Anthony.

Dan, author of the Rugby Zombies books, officially opened the school's library after spending the day working with children in writing workshops.

Teachers and pupils got into the spirit of the day by dressing up as characters from their favourite books.

Fairfield headteacher Sian Lewis explained that at a time when public libraries are under threat of closure, the school felt it was important to provide a service for their children to borrow and read books.

"The aim at Fairfield is to instil in our children a real love and pleasure of books and of reading to ensure that they become life long readers," she said.

"This new library will be open to all our pupils to borrow books they can take home to enjoy. This is made possible by parent volunteers who come in and help the children with their choices, offering suggestions and recommendations.

"Our thanks go to them for the wonderful job that they do."

Pupil Tia Lee, 11, said: "I think the new library is really awesome and it will encourage people to read new books."
