BOOKWORMS from RA Butler Infant School visited Saffron Walden Library last Wednesday to learn how to use the facility.

The Year Two pupils went along to the library's temporary home in Church Street along with form tutor Cheryl L'Angellier, and had a fun-packed morning.

Teacher Alison Kirby said: "We wanted to encourage them to join the library and let them learn how to locate books on the shelves.

"They were shown how to search for different titles, both fiction and non-fiction.

"The children were then set a challenge, being given descriptions and reference numbers and they had to go off and find the relevant books."

More Year Two pupils will be visiting the library later this week and Ms Kirby said the children gained a lot from the trip.

"All of the children enjoyed the experience a lot and they had to use their counting skills to find the books," she said.

"And they enjoyed being able to read the books that they had found afterwards.
