THE shelves are overflowing at All Saints’ College junior school library after Year 2 student Kaitlyn Martin won more than 300 books through the Kellogg’s Free Books competition.
Valued at $5000, the donation of 304 Penguin books means All Saints’ College students are now more spoiled for choice than ever.
“I’m happy because when the children go to the library there are more books for them to read and they don’t have to squabble over them,” Kaitlyn said.
Junior school Dean Penelope Crane said there were many prolific young readers at the school and that they were always searching for new material to read.
“The teachers at the College take every opportunity to promote the importance and the enjoyment of reading so it is fantastic to have such a big unexpected boost to our library,” Ms Crane said.
“I feel confident that the books will be well used and appreciated.”
Kaitlyn’s personal collection was also bolstered with an additional 100 books for her to read at home.
A veracious reader, her favourite books include the Sporty Kids series and the Juliet, Nearly a Vet series.
