Mulgrave Primary School, Woolwich, opens new library
3:20pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in News
PUPILS in Woolwich have celebrated the opening of their brand new library.
Mulgrave Primary School in Rectory Place, Woolwich, opened the library last week and marked it with a visit from Mayor of Greenwich Councillor David Grant.
The facility includes around 2,000 books and runs on a computerised lending system similar to those used in public libraries.
A performance from the school choir marked the opening and children have been holding literacy activities there all week.
The library was funded with a £10,000 grant from the Foyle Foundation charity.
Librarian Ceri McDonald said: "It would not have been possible to open the library without their support.
"The children absolutely can't wait to get in there. They love it."
