School Library Installers

Here at Timotay Playscapes, we have designed, manufactured and installed indoor libraries for schools throughout the UK. Providing the perfect backdrop and setting that allows children to submerge themselves – from real life into the book that they are reading. The spaces are designed to inspire and become a magical place for little learners and readers, to drive imagination and to inspire young readers.

Reading is an essential life skill and allows us to be transported from our own world to another. Not only this, but reading stimulates a child’s brain to grow and be more active and is a fundamental element of a child’s development. The effects of reading on child development are vast, and libraries are part of this very important journey.

Transform Your School Library & Bring Reading To Life

Reading serves as a fundamental tool in acquiring new knowledge. It can widen a child’s vocabulary and comprehension ability. Between the pages of a book, we can become immersed in the lives of fictional characters and learn about a culture entirely different from our own.

Children can learn new words and phrases, experience a range of emotions, and acquire skills and knowledge. Reading develops vocabulary, comprehension skills, and phonological understanding. This phonological understanding consists of patterns of speech and subtleties involved in pronunciation passively learned through reading.

• Supported cognitive development
• Improved language skills
• Preparation for academic success
• Increased concentration and discipline
• Improved imagination and creativity

Why Are Libraries In Schools So Important?

Libraries are a crucial link for children to access books and help to make connections between books and life.

An updated space creates a life-changing library, which inspires young readers and, provides a dedicated area for children to submerge themselves into the book that they are reading. Timotay Playscapes can help you to transform your conventional school library into a stimulating space.

“Children reading for joy is one of the two key factors in children’s future economic success… they will also be healthier and happier.” – Cressida Cowell (author of ‘How to Train A Dragon’)

Cressida Cowell is the driving force behind changing the face of libraries and their importance within school communities. She noted that one in eight primary schools does not have a school library, whereas in prisons – libraries are statutory.

Cressida Cowell has published an open letter asking the Prime Minister to ringfence £100m a year to help primary school libraries. She wants funding to be guaranteed for primary school libraries in the way that it is for physical education. You can learn more about Cressida’s mission by accessing the articles below:
