One of those delighted with the finished result is Millbank head teacher Kirsty Moneagle, who said creating the new space will enhance the reading experience for pupils at the school.

She continued: “We wanted a really cosy, nurturing neuk for our pupils to enjoy their learning and reading in.

"Improving literacy is important for us and any way we can make it a positive experience for pupils will help achieve that. We really want to foster a love of reading.

“It’s important to us that our pupils are supported in both their structured learning and informal time in school.

“Everyone is really excited about their new library space and I’m encouraged by their eagerness to make the best use of it.”
