The books on the bus will be passed around, all term long

Plans to convert a double-decker bus into a library at Aldersbrook Primary School got a boost last month when Aviva Community Fund announced a £10,000 award towards the cost of books.

"The bus will be a place for parents and volunteers to come and read with children... it will transform the reading opportunities for so many pupils," said Jo Blackman, who submitted the funding bid.

The bus – which was donated by Stagecoach last summer – makes up for the school's lack of space for a conventional library.
