The Book Jungle is officially open at Kew Riverside Primary School and the opening was marked by a swinging visit by Richmond’s Mayor.
Staff, parents and children posed for a picture with Cllr David Linnette at the official opening of the new school library on Friday. More than 100 guests including parents and families showed their support and came along to the grand opening and dived into some ‘book-themed’ refreshments.
The Book Jungle was named by a child from the school following an in-house competition. All of the artwork was done by a parent for free and the bookshelves put together by one of the parents. Other parents raised half the money for the new library and the school match funded the rest.
