Angus primary schools are being offered the opportunity to win their dream library with a £2000 investment up for grabs.

Library Energiser, created by the ScottishPower Foundation as part of its sponsorship of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, gives the schools the chance to win £2000 investment.

The scheme also gives schools their own mini book festival and an author visit.

Last year, Library Energiser was successfully piloted in Edinburgh and Glasgow and sparked the imaginations of bookworms across the two cities.

Ann Loughrey, trustee and executive officer, ScottishPower Foundation, said: “Following the success of last year’s Library Energiser initiative, we are bringing it back for a second year and opening up entries to primary schools across Scotland. We understand how important libraries are to a child’s education and are delighted to continue to help schools through this initiative and let two more schools create their dream libraries.

“The ScottishPower Foundation is committed to supporting community programmes that inspire young people to get more out of education, arts, culture and science.

“The Edinburgh International Book Festival is one of the UK’s best-loved literary events with a strong schools programme and we are very pleased to support it.”

To enter schools must submit a photograph of their current reading space and 100 words on how they would like it to look and feel in the future. Entries should be submitted by email to libraryenergiser@stripecommunications.com by Friday, June 26.
