Visit to the opening of the new library at Kingston



Two Library Monitors, Marilyn from Year 6 Comet Class and Daniel from Year 6 Meteor Class, were invited to attend the new library opening ceremony. After an early lunch at school they were accompanied by Mrs. Kent and Mrs. Perry on the short journey to the Kingston area of Milton Keynes.

The Mayor, Councillor Derek Eastman, made a speech to the waiting crowd before cutting the ribbon and declaring the library officially open. He said that the library was a great resource for the population of the eastern side of Milton Keynes, in a very good location close to the large Tesco supermarket with a variety of other shops and a selection of restaurants in Winchester Circle.

The event was attended by a number of officials and Councillors from Milton Keynes Council together with representatives from the local community.

Marilyn and Daniel enjoyed the chance to be among some of the first people to visit the new library. Their behaviour was excellent at all times and they showed themselves to be good ambassadors for St. Bernadette’s School.  Marilyn said “I enjoyed looking at the new books in the library and choosing a new one to borrow”. She also commented that “the library is light and airy with a very spacious and colourful children’s reading area. I think that children from St. Bernadette’s would love to visit and use it”. We all felt that one of the best things about the visit were the refreshments. We were offered tea, coffee or juice and chocolate biscuits!


We were welcomed by the very friendly library staff. They explained that there are self-service terminals where you can scan out and return books, magazines, DVD’s and other items. Anyone can join the library for FREE and once you become a member you can borrow items from any of the 9 libraries in the Milton Keynes area. For more information please see the website

The event was reported in the local press and you can find articles and photographs at the following websites.
