Burnfoot School Children Visit the Library
To celebrate Burnfoot Community School Literacy Week all primary classes made a visit to Hawick Library.
Children met staff, read stories, participated in activities and toured the library. In addition, library staff were invited to attend the ‘Library Launch’ at the school last Friday when the children showcased their own new facility.
Julia Cawthorne, Assistant Communities Librarian, Live Borders, said: “We are always happy to have classes visiting the library and the staff here really enjoy helping and encouraging them with literacy work.
“Throughout the year we also have class visits from Wilton and Stirches Primary Schools and are always keen to accommodate others who may wish to arrange a visit.”
Ewan Jackson, Chief Executive, Live Borders added: “This visit highlights the great literacy work that is being undertaken across the region both in schools and in libraries and how by working together they can deliver unique experiences for youngsters to engage in.”
