Ivy Lane Library
We are very proud of our Ivy Lane School library which we completed in February 2017. We were thrilled and honoured to welcome the then Children’s Laureate, Chris Riddell, to cut the ribbon and officially open our school library. Created with funding from Chippenham Borough Lands and a kind donation from an Ivy Lane family in memory of their book-loving son, Leo, it is of central importance to ‘Ivy life’ and visited weekly by every child in our school.
Designed and built with imagination by former employee Charlie Graham-May, our library is a space to escape into books. Pupils can relax under a real tree in the nature area or share a story on a ‘rock’ in underwater world. All pupils are encouraged to borrow books of their choice every week.
We regularly feature different authors, promote new books and keep the library feeling fresh with displays of different types of books every few weeks. You never know what you will discover next in Ivy Lane School Library!
