Congresbury’s school has unveiled its library after receiving generous donations.
St Andrew's Primary School, in Station Road, converted an empty classroom.
The parent-teacher assosiation (PTA) donated more than £10,000 in support of the project, which was further supported by donations from Holders Garage and families to purchase new books.
Katie Foreman, the school's English leader, said it was a lovely seeing the children's reaction to the opening.
She said: "While the work was taking place, the room was kept under wrap so no one could see inside and the room has been completely transformed."
