Library

At Four Lanes Junior School we recognise the importance of reading (especially reading for pleasure). With this in mind, we are proud to have a well-stocked and maintained library – with over 4,000 books for our children to use and enjoy. In addition to this, we are able to borrow 900 books from Hampshire School Library Service which helps to keep our library as up to date as possible.

To assist in the running of the library, we currently have 9 pupil librarians, one from each class (Year 4 upwards) as well as 2 additional Year 6 helpers. The librarians are trained to assist, not only the librarian, but also their peers in the choosing and borrowing of books.

Within the library our display boards are updated to inspire the children to read. We have an ‘Author PenPal’ display. This board includes information about the author as well as some of the books they have written and also give ideas from the author of suggested reading. We also have a ‘Library News’ board to give information about what happens in the library.

Over lunchtime, we currently run 2 library clubs: Tuesday for lower school and Thursday for upper school. These sessions can be attended by anyone who would like 30 minutes of book related fun.

Please remember:

Our children are fantastic at writing book reviews, these are shared with author/publishers and often help us to obtain free books we can add to our library.
