BOOKWORMS from Studley's St Mary's Catholic Primary School were treated to stories at the village library.

Reception children along with Year 5 and 6 pupils visited the community library where volunteers read stories and helped them find their way around the shelves.

Since opening in April last year, staff have worked with schools in the area to increase children's book borrowing, form a successful Bookstart scheme which benefits pre-school children, as well as providing work experience for older students.

Sue Werner, from the library, said: "The children really do love visiting. It's lovely seeing them every couple of weeks and it's so nice to see the library being used how it should be and watching their faces when they enjoy a good story."

In addition to the lending service the library also provides author talks including Fiona Joseph who will be discussing her book Beatrice: The Cadbury Heiress Who Gave Away Her Fortune on February 28 at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.

In January a Studley writers group will also be starting up.
