Pupils get brand new library at Milton Keynes school

    Schoolchildren at a Milton Keynes primary school will now be able to make use of a brand-new purpose-built library.

    Councillor Moriah Priestley, who represents CMK ward, spent the full £1,000 of her ward grant on the project which saw an empty and unused IT classroom transform into a new library.

    Summerfield School in Bradwell Common's old library was intersected by a busy corridor, meaning it was hard for children to find a quiet place to sit down and read.

    The new library will also provide an important space or children who might not have the option or access to work in a suitable learning environment.

    CMK Ward Councillor Moriah Priestley recently visited the school to see the new project. She said: “Libraries are places where children can express themselves and learn in a fun, relaxing and academic environment. They’re also a core part of children’s education so it’s great to see that my ward grant has gone towards such a great initiative that will prove invaluable for schoolchildren in the years to come.”

    The library opened in January 2023 and has since been enjoyed by dozens of local schoolchildren.

    Ian Fraser, Headteacher at Summerfield School, added: “We are very grateful for the donation and the support we have had bringing the new library design to life. The creation of the space by Jo Klimek, a friend of the school, into a large ‘reading corner’ has been hugely influential already in developing a love of reading in Summerfield’s children.”
