Staff and youngsters at Honiton Primary School have celebrated a new set of library doors which will let the facility be used at lunchtime.

The money for the doors was raised by the school’s Parent, Teacher and Friends Association, which also held a cake sale to raise funds for updating the library further.

Last Friday, youngsters donned fancy dress for World Book Day to watch the school’s mascot, Bones the Hippo, cut the ribbon and officially open the doors.

Joanna Rousseau, co-headteacher at Honiton Primary, said: “We are a school that loves to encourage all the children to read widely, and get as much enjoyment from books as possible.

“This new set of library doors that lead out into the school playground will now allow children to use the library at lunchtimes for changing books and for reading with friends.”
