The children have been really excited about visiting our school library and taking out a book of their choice to promote reading for pleasure.
Each book has been taken out on your child's individual library card. We recommend that your child returns their library book by latest on the following Thursday so that their old book can be returned and new books taken out on a Friday.
Please ensure that the books are kept in good quality as books drawn on, ripped or not returned will mean that your child may not get to take out library books in the future.
