Clevedon pupils have received help from the town’s community bookshop.
Youngsters at Yeo Moor Primary School are getting some outside help from the bookshop, in Copse Road, who are repairing piles of the school’s old dictionaries and thesauruses.
The books, many of which had spines and covers falling off, have been rebound so they can be reused by classes.
The rebounding process can take around one hour per book and 20 have already been repaired by the group.
The learning aids have gone straight back into the classroom, where they are already being used by the pupils to support their learning.
Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “This is really good news, our pupils are passionate about reading.
“We would like to thank the bookshop for helping us to facilitate pupils’ literacy development.”
