Blessed Trinity has won over £300 worth of books as part of James Patterson’s Big Book Giveaway.

Author Patterson has teamed up with Scholastic Books to offer the amazing Big Book Giveaway prizes and to help to give children greater access to books.

Blessed Trinity Librarian Mrs Halstead decided to enter the competition for the books in a bid to freshen up the library stock and offer more reading opportunities for the students.

She was delighted to hear that the school was a competition winner especially as the library had lost a few books following a mini flood.

“There are a variety of new books for students of all ages to enjoy,” said Mrs Halstead.  "This has been a wonderful opportunity to order some new James Patterson books as well as books of all different genres - adventure, thriller, fantasy and more.

“Our Library has a wide range of fiction books on offer to encourage reading for pleasure.   We are also part of the Accelerated Reader Programme which helps to develop reading skills.”
