As part of Mother Language and Book Week, we are asking for your help to fill the shelves in our new library with books for the children by donating even one book to our school.
We have a lovely new library in our school and we would love to have as many different kinds of books on the shelves for the children to read as possible. This will help us give the children a love of reading.
A family in our school has also suggested we set up a Free Little Library or Free Wee Library in our meeting room for the children. This is where children can leave in a book and take a book home. It is a great idea and we would love to support it with lots of books. You can read more about the idea on www.freeweelibrary.com.
Please support both of these libraries by donating at least one book. It could be a copy of your child’s favourite book, a book you saw in the shop that looked interesting or fun or an old book from your child’s bookshelf that they are finished reading. On the next page are some Do’s and Don’ts to help you donate a book.
Also, feel free to come in and check out our Mother Language and Book Week display in reception beside the school office.
