A Merseyside  school marked a new chapter in its history by inviting a renowned author to open its new library.

Wallasey secondary The Mosslands School has transformed its Study Centre into a library after a summer revamp.

And the new facility was given the seal of approval by award winning Liverpool children’s author Alan Gibbons.

Former teacher Mr Gibbons, whose books include the Legendeer Trilogy and have been translated into 19 languages – officially re-opened the library which he followed with  a full day of writing workshops with pupils.

The library is the result of hard work with teachers and support staff spending the summer break refurbishing the facility and adding more than 1,000 books for the students.

The revamp is part of the school’s aim to encourage students to develop their language and literature skills and encourage students to read for pleasure.

Gillian Roberts, the school’s head of literacy said: “We are delighted to have added so many books in a wide variety of subjects and to have made the library a more accessible and comfortable area for our students.”

 Student Calum Towers, 14,  said: “The library looks really good and its great to have so many more books - my friends and I will definitely be using it more in the future.”
