Children can enjoy learning at new library after a generous donation from the school’s parent teacher association.
St Andrew's Primary School, in Congresbury, transformed an empty classroom into a library.
The PTA donated more than £10,000 in support of the project which was further supported by more funds from Holders Garage and pupils families to purchase new books.
English teacher at the school, Katie Foreman, said: "It was a lovely seeing the children's reaction during the opening.
"While the work was taking place, the room was kept under wrap so no one could see inside and the room has been completely transformed.
"The feedback we have received from everyone has been overwhelmingly positive.
"We are very lucky to have such an amazing new space to promote our children's love of reading."
