The library, at Burnham Market Primary School, has been funded by the donations from the community, parents, staff and from fund-raising events at the school.

Mr Crossley-Holland, who is president of the School Library Association, opened the library and talked about his new book, Storm, which is set on land around the school.

Burnham Market Primary School head teacher, Rachel Stroulger, said: 'This was a wonderful celebration of the reading that goes on in this school on a daily basis.

'We are very grateful to the many supporters of the school who came and who have given so generously to this cause.'
