DROITWICH youngsters have been celebrating the launch of their school’s brand new library.

Witton Middle School’s new library was officially opened on September 10, by the Mayor of Droitwich, Councillor Lynne Duffy.

At the ceremony, staff, pupils, governors and friends were able to view the facilities and tour the school.

The new library has been created as part of a wider scheme to enhance facilities at the school, and improve disabled access.

The library at the Old Coach Road-based school will house an extensive range of fiction and non-fiction.

Headteacher, David Coll, said: “Reading is an important skill and every pupil is entitled to effective school library provision.

“This new facility, at the heart of the school, will enable us to continue to promote high quality reading and learning opportunities for all our children”.

The school will be holding an open day tomorrow, September 23, where visitors and prospective parents will be able to view the new facilities and also get a ‘taste’ of life at Witton.
