Reading Raffle Celebrates Acklington Road Library Re-opening

Dec 17

Two readers at Acklington Road received a nice surprise today when they received £10 Amazon vouchers from Lead Practioner and Literacy Lead, Mrs Grey.

Kadey Farrier and Bella Nyberg were gifted the vouchers as winners of this term’s reading raffle, which was launched to celebrate the re-opening of the much-improved Acklington Road Library.

The library re-opened in September 2021 with improvements including new books and a new, more welcoming layout.

Along with being a fantastic space for reading for pleasure and self-study, the library is also open for students to use most break and lunchtimes and hosts a Chess club too.

The raffle has been running since the library’s re-opening, with a ticket awarded to everyone who has borrowed a book this term. 

Mrs Grey presented the winners with their prizes as part of the festive fun this Friday.

She said: “A lot of hard work has gone into improving the library and the selection of books, so it’s great to see students enjoying the space and its resources. I’d encourage all students to come and look around the library and take out a book – you never know, you might be next term’s raffle winner! We are soon launching our new library app which will allow both students and parents to view the stock we have and get involved”
