The Library's friends from the amazing Pre-School Centre have donated brand new books for children to read when their parents are studying!

Following this donation of a fantastic selection of children’s books, the Library has created an attractive family-friendly study space.

By donating the books, the Pre-School Centre aims to promote literacy and to support students on campus with young children.

Adele Stewart, Pre-School Centre Manager, explains that 'the original idea for the donation actually stemmed from a conversation with my daughter – an Undergrad here at Lancaster, who had mentioned seeing a parent trying to occupy her own children whilst accessing the Library. After giving this more thought, a potential opportunity was identified to improve the experience for all Library users and to provide opportunities for the children improve their literacy by having access to their own mini library. I am delighted that working with you we have been able to achieve this.'

The book collection ranges from trolls and dinosaurs to Shakespeare and the solar system.

So if you are studying in the Library, head for the corner opposite the Work In Progress Space on the South Spine. The little ones can explore the treasures of the book box whilst you study right by them.
