Our Library Antares
Our talented Librarians Mrs Cooper-Evans and Mrs Keohane work together tirelessly to promote a love of reading and of storytelling, and welcome everyone to the calm sanctuary of our beautiful Library, Antares.
Now more than ever, it is critical that we help and encourage our young people to nurture a habit of reading for pleasure, that will hopefully become a lifelong love. The benefits of this are so well-proven and range from supporting emotional and mental well-being, to developing empathy, through to building a vocabulary that will give them an edge in the future and support their achievements in all areas of the curriculum.
The Librarians are blogging a Festive Read each day up to 20 December - there's great inspiration here for Christmas Stocking Fillers!
We use an Online System for our Library, called Accessit, that allows students to browse the library shelves, reserve books, renew loans and post reviews of books they have enjoyed from home or while out and about via their phone.
