Lockdown library 'bigger' but more lenders and donations needed

An English teacher said her ‘lockdown library’ has now expanded to Years 5, 6, and 7, but she needs more lenders as well as bookcases.
Laura Balerdi, who previously taught at Helena Romanes School, put announcements on Facebook groups about the library.
People who want to borrow a book message her, and she shares her address and leaves the books on her Great Dunmow doorstep. She cleans and quarantines books before releasing them to new families.
She has received more donations since the story was published in the Broadcast.
“There are quite a few regulars that are coming once a week.
“This week is quite busy as it’s half term.”

She added: “A few teachers from local schools have given me some books which is quite good.”
Laura has now launched a Facebook page, called Laura’s Library, where people can get in touch regarding both donations and requests.
