LIBRARIANS - what we do


One of our librarians has written this description about the role of a librarian.

"As librarians, we come in on our day at break time and sort out the AR books.

At lunchtime we sort the AR books and also the fiction and non-fiction.

We also do labelling and stamping of the new books.

Other jobs are to make sure that people are reading or doing a quiz, and to help design and organise things.

Overall the library is an amazing place to be."


Mrs Phillips says

"Librarians are very important and I could not run the library without them!

A different team of librarians are on duty each day.  Their main role is to sort all the books out and put them away in the correct places so that the library is always ready for pupils to come and find their next book."
