Burnhaven Pupils Benefit from Mobile Library Thanks to Local Councillors

>> 14 April 2017

Pupils at Burnhaven School in Peterhead are benefitting from regular visits to the library. But instead of making the long journey into the town centre, the library comes to them, thanks to the intervention of local councillors Stuart Pratt and Stephen Smith.

Councillor Stuart Pratt explained:

“Stephen and I attended a recent meeting of the Burnhaven School Parent Council where we heard of the difficulties in accessing the town’s library due to the logistics of getting the children there and back. Given the school’s location right on the edge of the town it would take too long for children of that age to walk there and back and valuable lesson time would be used up.

“We hit on the idea of seeing whether there was any spare capacity for the local Mobile Library to call at the school and were delighted when our request was met with a positive response.”

Councillor Stephen Smith added:

“I had previously arranged for the Mobile Library to call at Longhaven School, where the service proved very popular with the pupils, so was pleased to be able to assist Burnhaven School in this regard.

“I’m sure the Mobile Library will prove very popular with the pupils.”
