4th Year ECCE Project for World Book Day 2013

World Book Day (7th March) was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. The aim is to encourage people of all ages to read, in particular children.

The library has a display of some wonderful story books for young children created and designed as part of a 4th year project by students from the Early Childhood Care in Education course (who are pictutered with their lecturer Kate Duke and Ursula Cox from the library)

These books are currently on display at the library information desk.
