Thorndon: Community helps transform primary school’s library
A community effort has helped transform an unused area of a Suffolk primary school into “the most fantastic library”.
Thorndon Primary School celebrated the launch of the new facility this week as the latest chapter in a more extensive refurbishment.
Headteacher Tamsin Little said the library had been described by a colleague as “the most fantastic school library” they had ever seen.
“The environment is modern and fresh and we are finding that the children want to be in there,” she said. “They want to go and explore the books and anything that makes children want to read has got to be encouraged.”
Work creating the new facility had been supported heavily by volunteers, business and organisations from the local community.

“We have an amazing community here,” she said.
