Ilfracombe Church of England (VC) Junior School

Library


 

We have over six thousand books catalogued on a computer system (using the Junior Librarian Cloud application)

 

We have recently undertaken a complete stock take of books and have removed all the old and added many new.  We also use the Accelerated Reader program to help children develop their comprehension skills.

In the library there are many places to sit comfortably and lose yourself in a book including a beautiful new quiet corner which has lovely bean bags to get comfortable on!

Each class has a designated half-hour session each week for children to borrow a book, which they may keep for a week, but can renew if necessary. All books must be kept clean, safe & dry.

The library is also open during lunchtimes, where children can exchange their books and sit & read quietly if they wish. This is a very popular facility all year round, but especially on chilly, damp days! 

Our range of titles is extensive and offers great choice for all ages in our school.  We also use the Accelerated Reader programme to further enhance the reading and learning experience.
