Crown Princess Mette-Marit has opened a new library at the primary school Vahl School in the Old Olso district in Norway.

Students and choirs greeted the royal upon her arrival at the school which puts a heavy focus on literature.

The new library sits on the fourth floor of the school and will be available to the 200 or so students from the first to seventh grades.

The Crown Princess, a passionate advocate for literature and patron of the Norwegian Library Association, opened the library and heard a performance from the “Tutti” choir, organised by Kultur i Gamle Oslo (KIGO).

The newly opened library has a special reading corner where a joint reading session took place during the opening ceremony. Students from the fourth grade read “The Girl Who Would Save the Books” by Klaus Hagerup before the Crown Princess, who later received a tour of one of the school’s classrooms.

Vahl School is diverse with children speaking many different languages, and it focuses on communication and trust while educating the children.

This was the Crown Princess’s first engagement since Christmas.

She also joined Crown Prince Haakon to award the social entrepreneur of the year at the NHO (the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise) annual conference.
