Library – Can children please bring their library books back for returns only. Sadly Janis and Christine, who have run the school library for years are now hanging up their stampers! A massive thank you goes out to these wonderful ladies for giving up so much of their own time to encourage reading at Loanhead Primary. The library has grown from a few hundred books to thousands!
