HUDDERSFIELD schools will join in when a national campaign is launched to show off the merits of good school libraries.
Primary school teachers were told yesterday of the efforts they can make.
They were attending a seminar run by Kirklees Council's Booksplus service at its base in Red Doles Lane, Huddersfield.
Booksplus provides advice, runs courses and even organises shopping excursions to high quality book suppliers.
It also lends books, videos and art boxes to local schools.
The Department for Education and Skills campaign was launched in London at the same time.
It aims to show how effective and well-stocked school libraries can make a real difference to young people.
Jane Walton, deputy head of Christ Church Woodhouse School, Deighton, said she was passionate about the role of her library and had begun a project to transform the room.
"We aim to create a school library where the children will want to spend time and which is full of fun, interesting books," she said.
