‘Borrow a Book, Borrow a Bag’

Children at Clyde Cottage Nursery, Dunoon have recently enjoyed their new ‘Borrow a Book’, ‘Borrow a bag’ initiative.   The library started off with a small number of books but has grown since, with children bringing their own books in, which widens the choice and allows other children to borrow.  The library, which has no stamping in and out process, allows children who don’t always have access to many books, to choose one, put it in one of the borrowed bags, take it home for a few days, enjoy reading it with their parents then bring it back and choose another one.  However, if a book has been particularly enjoyed by any of the children, they are allowed to keep it!
