Liberton Primary Book Support from Community Fund
Good quality reading materials are at the heart of raising attainment in literacy and when an application was received by our Community Fund from the pupils of Liberton Primary we were delighted to support their efforts.
The P4 to P7 pupils were seeking to increasing the range of books in the school library, in particular more graphic novels as they identified this as the most popular genre amongst their fellow pupils. They also wanted to boost the range of books after the school lost many of its library collection in a fire a couple of years before.
Claire Jefcoate, Centre Manager at Cameron Toll, added: “We were very impressed at the pupils’ initiative to apply to the Community Fund to help build up their school library’s collection. We asked our friends at Waterstones in Cameron Toll if they would help the pupils identify the type of books they were looking for and they were more than happy to do so. We welcomed the pupils to the centre and now the school library is now in possession of lots of new reading materials which was exactly what the pupils set out to do.”
