Minerva library receives a generous donation
Minerva Primary School was delighted to receive a donation of 40 books to the library, generously given by local firm of chartered accountants A C Mole as part of their 120 years celebration. The firm pledged to donate 120 books to three local primary schools, and presented Minerva with a list of 40 books including many children's classics as well as some newer books.
Staff had a great time unpacking the box and reminiscing over some old favourites, such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy and Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus. We are equally looking forward to sharing them with our children. We were also thrilled to receive several titles which will expand our new diversity section.
Headteacher Gareth Nation said: “We are delighted to receive this generous donation of books from A C Mole, which will make a very welcome addition to our library. Many of our children only have access to books through lending libraries, and this gift will help them to develop a love of reading from as young an age as possible, which will be of huge benefit to them in later life”.
