Kensington Prep School in Fulham has transformed its library to put reading at the heart of the school. “The key to encouraging children to read is to make it a comfy, enjoyable experience, says Head, Mrs Hulme-McKibbin. Most adults read in comfortable places, so why not make a cosy environment for children too? Our library – part of our ‘Creating Spaces for Growing Minds’ programme - has now been transformed into a child-friendly space with inviting cosy corners, soft cushions, low-level bookcases to browse through and a new mezzanine level, putting reading at the heart of the school. We want to make sure reading is every bit as exciting as the digital screen."
