Author Chris Powling also joined in a reading session with a group of pupils and cut the ribbon.
The facility, which has been planned since July last year, is the culmination of months of preparation and hard work.

‘‘Many local libraries have closed recently and we wanted the children to have the chance to borrow as many books as possible.
“We wanted our library to instil a love of reading for pleasure – in all formats, books, IPADs, comics, etc.”
The library will be run with the help of pupil librarians.
