The school library has been very busy since we returned from the summer break back in September. To start off we now have 17 shiny new bays of shelving, after making space in a section of the library which was originally used for computers. This means that our library is bigger and better than ever. We moved all the non-fiction books into it, and are currently working on a new biography section and also a section for teaching books and fiction books for staff members. Having more shelves also means that we can have more books for our fiction sections, which means more choice and more reading for our pupils.

We’ve celebrated Roald Dahl day, National Poetry day, and World Mental Health Day with some fabulous book displays. This form of reader engagement is very important in libraries, and has been possible because of the new shelving. It’s really good to see how many books whizz off the shelves when we do this kind of promotion of books. As this has been such a success, we are now working on our Halloween display entitled “Batty for Books”, which will promote our fantasy and horror genres. Some members of our pupil librarian team have been busy working on this display which will look amazing when it is finished.

We are looking forward to our forthcoming author visit too. In November we welcome Alice Broadway author of the Ink series. She is going to be working with Year 8 with some creative writing workshops. She will also be available to sign her book and will be meeting all our pupil librarians. It’s going to be a day to remember!
