A new library has opened at Wilburton CE Primary School in East Cambridgeshire.
Local author, Robert Macfarlane, cut the ribbon on September 17 at 4pm during the school’s autumn fete.
The library is themed with pictures and wall murals from Robert’s book, ‘The Lost Words’.
The school has been fundraising to build the new library since 2019.
There has been a huge effort from the school community, local businesses, individual donors and grants from charities.
