STUDENTS will be donating books in a town centre today (Thursday).

The Monk's Walk School pupils will be celebrating their book week by providing books in WGC town centre.

Adam Lancaster, librarian at the Knightsfield school, said the aim of the project was to share reading in the community.

"We have been given a number of books by publishers and other parties and we are going to be dropping these around the town with the hope that people will pick the books up read them and then either pass them on to someone else or drop them off for another person to pick up and read.

"Our students have been working on writing promises for the books which people will read to explain what we are hoping they are going to do with the books.

"By giving these books we are hoping to encourage people to read more and enjoy books.
