Holwell Primary School had been without a library for the last four years due to the expansion of the school.

Thanks to additional financial support from the Friends of Holwell and a successful bid for a grant from the Foyle Foundation, the school has now been able to provide a new library for the children.

A school spokesman said: “Though we live in a technological world where information can be collected at a touch of a button, we feel there is nothing more exciting than the touch and smell of a book and losing yourself in the story, being transported with the characters into a different world.

“We intend that the new library will provide good quality books and engaging texts for our children to read.
