School Library

Student Book Reviews

The library is located on the top floor of the school's Trinity Building and boasts state-of-the art facilities including a multimedia room.

The library houses a wide range of Reference, Information and Fiction resources for the children to access. Children have a regular weekly 30 minute loans time.

Children are welcome to come to the library before school and during first lunch break. They can read, borrow, draw, play games, catch up on homework, do writing or use the library computers.

The library is fully automated and uses the web based program, Oliver. Our catalogue can be searched online by clicking the Oliver link on the school website.

Parents and family members are valuable partners with the class teacher and school library in encouraging children in their literacy development. It is my aim to help children to develop a lifelong love of reading. We hope that they will feel comfortable in libraries and experience them as pleasant, comfortable, enjoyable and stimulating places to use.

On a practical note, you are strongly urged to provide named library bags for your children. This prevents damage and loss of books. It is also really helpful if you can help your children to remember their borrowing day, so they get into a regular routine of borrowing, reading and returning their resources.

We receive valuable assistance from Miss Stephanie Robson and the Senior Library Committee, but we can always do with more! There is always plenty of work to do in running the library smoothly. You are welcome to pop into the library to meet Jill Kelly, the Teacher-Librarian and Karen Allen, the Library Aide. It would be pleasure to meet you. Let them know if you would like to help.
