Bookworms at a Nairn primary school can now enjoy a good read in their new library.
The facility at Millbank Primary School has been made possible by the hard work and dedication of many people.
Former depute head Mrs Thomson and principal teacher Mrs Laws worked tirelessly to manage the project, coordinating elements such as fundraising, decoration, sourcing books and furnishings.
The wider school community helped to support it by organising a sponsored walk in 2018.
A parent also helped by completing and submitting an application for funding from the Scottish Library and Information Council.
This was successful and funding of £6000 allowed the school to purchase books to make up reading packs and also purchase additional books around the subjects of health and wellbeing.
Head teacher Maria McPherson said that the funds also allowed P7 pupils from the school to attend workshops from local author Corrina Campbell.
She added: “All pupils in the school completed a book review to decorate the library.
“To assist in running the new library and supporting younger pupils to access the books, the school has appointed librarians from the P7 year group.”
