There was great excitement recently at Greystones Educate Together when children's author Jackie Burke cut the ribbon on their new school library.

Jackie lives in Bray's Raheen Park and is author of the Grindlewood series. The children, teachers and parents gave her a very warm welcome and she was glad to meet all of them.

The school moved in to its brand new building in October of last year and this was the official launch of their beautiful library which was kitted out and decorated by a dedicated group of parents.

'I was very honoured to be invited to open the lovely new school library in Greystones Educate Together,' said Jackie.

'Congratulations and well done to all the teachers and parents who worked so hard to provide such a wonderful resource for the school.'

Jackie recently brought out the second Grindlewood book, starring Timber the brave malamute who leads the enchanted animals as they continue their perilous quest to defeat the wicked warlock Worfeus and save their home from destruction.

The fanciful books have proven a huge hit amongst young readers and Jackie loves meeting her fans and talking about all sorts of literature.
