Bookworms

Who We Are

We are a group of 32 pupils who care deeply for our library and are enthusiastic about book reading. We meet every week to discuss everything our plans about how to make or library as good as it can be. We discuss how the library works as well as thinking of great ideas of how to get more people reading.

What We Do

We work with the schools librarian Mrs Haynes to learn about how to use the Junior Librarian System. This is the computerised system we use to know what books we have in stock and using each pupil’s barcode we can see what books they have on loan and trends across a class or the whole school.
