World Book Day 2019

We had a great World Book Day this year. Firstly we smashed the fund-raising record raising almost £600. Funds will go to the charities Book Aid and Book Trust. We had more pupils coming in dressed up than ever before. So many amazing outfits this year including Julius Caesar and Gangster Granny. You can view some of their amazing outfits on the Hamstead Hall site by clicking here. Thanks for everyone who took part . We had such fun in the library. Bring on World Book Day 2020!

1/2 Price Book Fair

On the morning of Monday 11th July through to Friday 15th July the library will be hosting a 1/2 price book fair at the library. Pupils will be able to pick from a wide selection of amazing Scholastic resources including, but not limited to Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries, the Divergent series and the new Rainbow Rowell. They’ll also be competitions to win free books, a bargain bucket and part of the money raised will go on new resources for the library. We’ll be revving up marketing efforts over the next few weeks and we hope to see as many of you there as possible!


Half Term Update

We’ve had a great half term at the library. We thought it would be a good idea to let you all know what we have in store for when students return on the 6th June.
-We’re going to be raising awareness of World Environment day and the challenging issues that will face the next generation.
-We’re going to launch our first YouTube video. Check out our channel here.
-We have a Book Fair planned that will be running from the 11th July, there will be plenty of excellent book ranges from Scholastic as well as a bargain bin of our outdated books.
-We’ll be promoting and pushing the Library Eclipse service to the students with a brand new display and video.
-We’ll hoping to bring in over 70 new resources. On the 6th July, the students will gain access to the Dark-Mouth Series, The Martian, Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children, My Brother is a Superhero , Little Women, Jurassic Park/World, The Girl on the Train and Alice in Sunderland. That’s just week 1!
