Library

 

 The school is looking for parent helpers to help with the library. If you can offer any help, please leave you details and the times you can offer during the week. Thank you.

 

 

Library Opening Times

Monday              Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5

Tuesday             Year 6

Wednesday       Year R and Year 1

Friday                Year 2

 

 

An adult will be present during these times.

The library is also open on a Monday 3.00 to 3.30 when Reception and Year 1 children can visit with their parents to choose and return books together.

Library books can be returned at any time, simply by placing them in the green box on the librarian desk, in the library.

 

Librarian

The current Librarian is Tim Moon

 

Pupil Librarians

The library team are responsible for issuing, checking returns and generally keeping the library tidy and a welcoming place. The librarians are: Yasmine Gregg, Harley Kliskey, Elise Wall, Charlotte Brown, John Lawrence and Emma Hannam.

 

Wish List

We are introducing a wish list. This will hang outside the library so you can write or your child can write any books you/they feel it may be good to have in the library. We will then periodically review and make attempts to source.

 

School Library Service

Shipton Bellinger Primary School subscribes to Hampshire Schools Library Service (SLS).  As part of this, a `Book Exchange` of two hundred books, takes place twice a year, which replenishes and updates our library stock.  

The SLS subscription also offers advisory services, which includes a stock audit. This ensures the library has a well-balanced, up-to-date selection of stock which is suited to the needs of the children and school community.

Many additional books have been obtained through the donation from parents, pupils and teachers as well as from monies donated by FOS.

A computer program called Junior Librarian is used by the librarians to scan the barcodes of books which are borrowed / returned.

 

Issuing and returning Books

A computer program called Junior Librarian is used by the librarians to scan the barcodes of books which are borrowed / returned.

The school appreciates the prompt return of any books borrowed. The average loan period is 2 weeks, though can be shorter or longer if needed. At the end of each term we do check the loans and anything that has been outstanding for 6 weeks or more will be chased for return. The overdue books may also prevent the issuing of further books until they returned or replaced.
