New library lending scheme

Posted: 26th April 2016 | Category: Reception, Years 1 & 2

Claire Morley and Annabelle have spent time organising the library into sections to make choosing a book much easier.
We have organised fiction into A-Z order and have separate sections for 'Animal Stories'; 'Fantasy' and 'Adventure' with more categories to be added to save time and guide you to the right section.  Work is still in progress on the non-fiction side, but we are getting there!
For the younger ones, (EYFS - Y2) appropriate books are all located near the beautiful window, with cushions and carpet for story time sessions.
In the very near future the lending system will be computerised but, for now, we have resorted to good old fashioned pen and paper.  So please feel free to borrow a book and write your details in the booklet near the door.
Near the doors there is a shelving unit for returned books so, if you can't remember where you found the book, please replace it here and one of the Librarians will tidy up.  We would also appreciate any books which you no longer need at home, fiction or non-fiction.  If you have any books in good condition which you would like to donate, please leave them on the unit by the door.  Book plates will be available for you to label donated books.

Finally, we would like the children to take ownership for the library.  We will therefore be looking to recruit library reps to help the librarians.  The application process will be explained soon.
