As well as Mrs Harding, our Learning Resource Manager, there will be Pupil Librarians on duty most days. The Pupil Librarians are here to assist Mrs Harding in the LRC.

 Finding Books

Fiction books are in alphabetical order by the author's SURNAME as well as by genre. Non-fiction books can be found by subject category and number. There are labels and subject headings to help you find your way around. There is also a subject index in the LRC to help you find what you are looking for. If you need further help please ask Mrs Harding or a pupil librarian.
