A LIBRARY in a Bournemouth primary school has been redecorated and was reopened to pupils and staff by the Mayor of Bournemouth.

On Monday, June 21, Headteacher of Hill View Primary School, Miss Victoria Buckland, welcomed the Mayor of Bournemouth, Cllr David Kelsey to open the school library after it was redecorated.

The library has been redesigned with wall wraps which were designed by the pupils following a competition.

They were asked to design characters, book related images and quotes, with the winning designs now captured as wall wraps in the library, and are looking "fantastic."

A spokesperson from the primary school said: "We hope to inspire all children to have a love of books and enjoy reading them whether they are at school, at home, sitting outdoors or another favourite place to read.

"The reading team hope that the once the children start using the library they will share their passion for reading with their friends, families and other pupils across the school.

"A very big thank you to all those involved in this process. "

Once the design winners were chosen, the school's Reading Team along with Mr Kelly the Site Manager worked together with the company Wall Art to produce the wall wraps.

The spokesperson added: "The aim of the wall wraps is to promote reading and to show a variety of authors and illustrations so that the library space was a place of encouragement, inspiration and wonder."

On the day of the reopening, the winners of the competition met the Mayor and helped him to cut the ribbon.

They also discussed their designs and inspiration for them with Cllr Kelsey, along with their favourite books.
