South Wootton Infant School celebrate their 50th anniversary with the opening of a newly-refurbished library.
The King's Lynn school on Church Lane invited former pupils from as far back as 1960 for the ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, March 31.
The library has been designed to make reading more interesting for youngsters, with cubby holes and toadstool chairs.
Headteacher Joanne Davenport said: 'It is all to do with our refocus on reading and making it a more attractive environment.
'The children love it, it's a great place for them to enjoy books more than they already do.

'It will boost their reading skills and love of books.'
Plans are being made for the library to be open out for both children and parents to use outside of school hours.
