The Library offers resources and programs designed to foster a lifelong love of books and reading, and to help students develop critically important research and digital literacy skills.
With a collection of more than 5,500 books and digital resources specifically for our primary-aged students, the Library aims to meet the needs of all learners. Parents, nannies and school staff also have access to our collection of books and online resources.
We also have a “makerspace” where children can explore and create with a variety of crafts.
HOW THE LIBRARY IS USED
All classes visit the Library for at least one lesson every week, utilising the resources and reading spaces to conduct planned reading activities, then to return and borrow books. The Library also offers a daily programme of lunchtime activities including board games, film showings and mindfulness.
OTHER LIBRARY SERVICES
The Library offers after-school activities through Shrewsbury’s “You-Time!” programme, with a reading club called Kids Lit Genius.
The Library subscribes to Tumblebooks which are animated stories designed to help those learning to read.
Parents can request log-in details to access this collection themselves, by contacting the Librarian firstname.lastname@example.org
